Description

Join Paranation at Fort Widley

History

Fort Widley was part of "Palmerston's Folly" - a civil defence across Portsdown Hill built in 1861 to defend the city from attack.


In 1942 it was used to house prisoners of war and from 1943 it was an alternative control centre for Southwick House (HMS Dryad).


We have exclusive access to Fort Widley for the evening.


Activity

Fort Widley Reported Activity:

• Ghostly residents are said to include a sergeant-major who enjoys whistling
• The old sergeants' mess is reported to be a very intimidating area to visit now
• Ghostly footsteps and bangings are often heard, these are said to be made by a former prisoner
•There are reports of the spirit of a little boy haunting the tunnels that run deep beneath the fort. It is said that he was a drummer boy and was being pursued along the parade ground by a superior officer, having been disobedient, and fell to his death down the spiral staircase.
• Rapid footsteps have been heard running along the tunnels and, apparently, he often plays games.
• Ghost hunters have detected a very dominant male spirit and say they feel a sense of foreboding when he approaches. He has been sighted walking with a lantern and peering over people as a 7ft (2.13m) tall dark shadow.
• A female spirit is said to be the wife of one of the married couples that resided at the fort or one of the prostitutes that came up to the fort to cater for the male occupants. The story says she was murdered there and her tormented spirit is always trying to flee her aggressor. It is also said that she looks after the spirits of the children found within the tunnels.
Looking forward to investigating the full extent of the paranormal activity found here!!
