    Story

    Beacon Hill Fort in Harwich Essex was commissioned by Henry the V111 and then reinforced further during WW1. At the outbreak of WW2 it was fitted with experimental 6" guns to defend against German invasion. Since the 50s it has been abandoned. and has now nearly 70 years later has been purchased to be turned into a space for use by the people of Harwich. the site is extensive the 30 + buildings including the network of underground tunnels are in remarkable condition, even though they have been routinely vandalised over the years. but the site holds such wonderful memories for everyone who grew up in Harwich.

    The whole town is behind its preservation. But not as a static museum (Though some buildings will celebrate its history) but as a space the everyone can use. we have such wonderful plans but all that costs money. A lot of money. the buildings under the guidance of English Heritage will be restored externally to look how she was in the 1940s but the interiors will be for local groups to use. It is difficult to explain how large, beautiful and unique this site is so please visit and why not have a look at our Twitter Account , Instagram Account , "Like" us on our Facebook Page or join our Facebook Group , and if you are in the area please come visit and explore in person.
