Paranormal Investigations

We will soon be at the centre of an archaeological exploration and heritage regeneration project thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund. Click here for details. 

Are You Brave Enough

Spend a night in one of the most paranormally active areas of Kent and connect with the spirits in our 750 metres of underground tunnels. Make contact with some of our many resident spirits by taking part in some of the following activities: Dowsing, Pendulums, Vigils, Table Tipping, Séances, Glass and Candle work.

The Fort and the surrounding area has been inhabited for over 3000 years and the area in and around it includes a Saxon burial ground, a Roman mosaic and the original site of old Chatham which was demolished to make way for the fortifications of Fort Amherst.  With so much history, the area has very high levels of paranormal activity.
