    Re: New Tavern Fort
    David Mills states the following in his article entitled ‘NORTH KENT Is where you live haunted’ which appeared on News Shopper Website, Sunday 30th August 2009.

    Here lies the remains of an 18th century fort, built to defend the Thames against any naval attack from France, and later rebuilt by General Gordon between 1865 and 1879.

    Centuries ago however, it was the site of a medieval graveyard.

    Open to the public for more than 20 years, there have been up to 40 reported sightings of ghoulish activity.

    That is according to Victor Smith, a volunteer who works at the fort.

    He said: “We have had lots of reports from visitors about things they have seen, sounds they have heard and things they have felt in terms of cold spots, typical of alleged hauntings.”
