Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker Ghost Hunt

Kelvedon Hatch Nuclear Bunker may not be so secret anymore, but the loss of its anonymity has led to an awareness of its hauntings. This cold war-era nuclear bunker sits quietly beneath a modest bungalow in the Essex countryside and, while it never got the chance to test out its atom-resistant properties, we at Eerie Evenings think the story of its construction is enough to prickle the skin.

The bunker’s walls were constructed 10 feet wide and 100 feet deep. This was no small feat, considering it was all done in secret, and when the foreman’s hat was found floating on top of a fresh layer of concrete one morning, the workers presumed the worst. We will never know whether the unfortunate man fell in, to be sealed within the walls for eternity; however, needless to say, he was never seen or heard from again.

However, the death of the foreman does not explain the reported apparition of an ‘unusually tall elderly lady’, the RAF officer who wanders the halls, or the woman in uniform who has on several occasions angrily instructed visitors and workers to leave the premises. There are also noises, flying stones, foul odours, mists, and crashes and bangs to be witnessed. Dark shadows are seen flitting back and forth across the sick bay and various mediums have recognised a malevolent presence. There is the possibility that this dark force predates the bunker, possibly going back to the Roman burial grounds and early Bronze Age site nearby. Either way, it is enough to convince us of the location’s ghostly credentials and that it more than deserves a place on our books.

Since being opened to the public in 1992, Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker has featured on Living TV’s Most Haunted and Yesterday’s Great British Ghosts, featuring Eerie Evenings’ founder Chris Arnold, and the apparitions have continued to present themselves.

There is no need to worry, however, as our tours are led by professional and experienced ghost tour leaders and we stress that all our Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker ghost hunt events, while thoroughly spooky, are completely safe.

When planning our Essex ghost hunting tour, don’t forget that these tours do sell out. To secure your place and avoid disappointment, we recommend booking online or by phone at the earliest opportunity.
