Ghost Hunt at Fort Paull Hull Saturday 13th August 2011
UK Mystic Nights
Ghost Hunts, paranormal investigations, Haunted Places
Location: Hull, North Humberside
Set within the walls of this superb Napoleonic fortress, in over 10 acres on the banks of the Humber Estuary, the Paull Battery was built on the orders of Henry VIII, but played its first significant role in July 1642, during the Civil War in England
Later in the same year the Battery was partly demolished by gunfire from Parliamentarian ships sailing up the Humber to relieve the siege of Hull, which at the same time damaged Paull Church with shots meant for the Battery. It was not until the Crimean war of 1854 - 56 that it was thought necessary to fully repair and rebuild the Battery and it is this building complex which can be seen today.
During WW2 the battery continued to be part of Hull’s defences, and until the 1960s it was owned by the Crown before being finally sold off into private ownership.
After years of back-breaking restoration, The battery (re-named “Fort Paull”) finally opened to the public in 2000 as a heritage museum, housing many exhibits and 500 years of history within its walls.
