Are your brave enough to explore this creepy 17th century fort?

Built just outside Felixstowe, Suffolk, at the mouth of the River Orwell, Landguard Fort, or Langer Fort as it was originally known, was designed to guard the entrance to Harwich, England.

1 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

The first fortifications from 1540 were a few earthworks and blockhouse, but it was James I of England who ordered the construction of a square fort with bulwarks at each corner.


2 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

A new Fort battery was built in 1717, and a complete new fort on an adjoining site was started in 1745 to a pentagonal bastioned trace.


3 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

New batteries were built in the 1750s and 1780, but the biggest change was in the 1870s where the interior barracks were rebuilt to a keep-like design, the river frontage was rebuilt with a new casemated battery covered by a very unusual caponier with a quarter sphere bomb proof nose.

During the Second World War, it was used as one of the balloon launch sites of Operation Outward


5 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

This was a project to attack Germany by means of free-flying hydrogen balloons that carried incendiary devices or trailing steel wires (intended to damage power lines.)




6 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

Between 1942 and 1944, many thousands of balloons were launched.


7 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

Visitors as well as local people, have their own experiences of paranormal activity in or around the Fort.


8 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

The most common being the image of a sailor looking out of the top right window (the side visible from the road).


9 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

Most reports were from the 1990s, but occasionally there are still claims that people were “pushed” whilst visiting the top floors.


10 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

Ugh.


11 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

12 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

13 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

What even is this?


14 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

No.


15 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

Noooooo.


16 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

Ghosts can’t jump through computers, right?


17 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

Stahp.


18 There's No Way I'm Going In There (19 pics)

Goodbye, creepy fort.

"Are your brave enough to explore this creepy 17th century fort?"

"The first fortifications from 1540 were a few earthworks and blockhouse"
1540 - it's 16th century, not 17th.

"A new Fort battery was built in 1717"
1717 - it's 18th century.

Where did you get this 17th century thing?
