Fort Horsted Ghost Hunt - Ghost Hunt Events - 2015
2015 ~ 7:30pm until 1:30am ~ Tickets £45 per person
Experience a night of ghost hunting at Fort Horsted, Chatham, Kent with Ghost Hunt Events on 2015 7:30pm until 1:30am. Tickets £45 per person.
History of Fort Horsted
Fort Horsted, Kent was the largest of the five forts designed to defend Chatham's eastern and southern approaches. Many changes were made to the original design of Horsted since its inception in the 1860's. Most noticeably Fort Horsted does not have caponiers or other exposed external features clearly visible in earlier works such as the Drop Redoubt in Dover. This was due to the development of high explosive shells in the intervening period between the 1860's and the eventual construction some twenty years later. Fort Horsted was finished by 1889, but never received the full compliment of armament she was designed for. In 1902 Fort Horsted was mounted with seven machine guns. In the Second World War AA guns were mounted at the Fort.
During the site visit we came across some areas which were unpleasant for any length of time, just had that feeling that you wanted to get out!
This is a highly active place and very haunted with many tunnels and rooms which have been untouched for several years. This place oozes spiritual activity!
Reported paranormal activity:-
- Feeling of being watched
- A little girl whose voice has been recorded by visitors
- Shadowy figures witnessed in the tunnels
- Areas so scary that people refuse to visit!
- Sounds of people approaching, and no-one arrives
- Mumbling, whistling or talking sounds in the tunnels
- Spirits that make people laugh for no reason at all!

What Happens at the Event
Our events are always 100% investigation and vigil events, we won't waste time by taking you on a history tour of the venue.
We will not usually talk about the history of the building unless people ask us to do so.
We don't hold workshops or briefing on equipment usage. Any equipment that you will be using throughout the event will be explained at the start of each session by our team leaders.
For the first few hours (usually 1 hour per session) you will be in a group and you will spend time with our Mediums doing séances, where they will try to get the active spirit to move you in some way (this is not designed to scare you) and with our paranormal investigators doing experiments, table tilting, glass divination, Ouija boards, EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments and other equipment experiments using the latest ghost hunting equipment.
After these controlled sessions you will have the opportunity to venture off on your own or in small groups to explore the venue or to hold lone vigils or re-visiting an activity that you enjoyed in our controlled sessions. In this part of the night you can use our ghost hunting equipment to do your own ghost hunt. You may take photos/videos with your own cameras throughout our ghost hunts. You may also use any of your own ghost hunting equipment during our controlled sessions.

Spent a fantastic evening with the GHE team and other ghost hunters at Fort Horsted. The team are very professional, friendly and welcoming. Got to use all the gadgets in investigations and had some strange experiences. Footsteps,whistling,communicating with spirit through emf detectors etc. Will definitely be going to more events thanks for a great evening guys.
