Fort Widley

This Grade II listed building built between 1860 and 1868 was to protect Portsmouth from a rear attack. Used in the Victorian times to accommodate various infantry units. It was also used in both World War I and World War II.

Said to be haunted by the ghosts of a drummer boy and French prisoners from the Napoleonic Wars and other ghostly residents include a man said to be a sergeant-major who enjoys whistling while haunting the fort. The old sergeants' mess is reported to be a very intimidating area to visit now. 

On one occasion a member of the horse riding staff witnessed a leather strap be thrown by someone unseen across the corridor that she was walking along! The keep of the fort is another area where there have been reports of ghostly footsteps and bangs are often heard. These are said to be made by a former prisoner, or possibly a prison guard.
