Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 8-12-2012

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 8th December 2012
Chatham, Kent

This ghost hunt was the last to take place at Fort Horsted for 2012 and we were hoping that the spirits would make this event special; we and our guests were not disappointed.

Each member of the Ghost Hunt Events team has their favourite location within this fort and although I do not enjoy the stairs (all 192 of them) I do enjoy taking the guests to the counterscarp galleries, as something interesting usually happens to the guests.

My first group were joined by a male energy called Michael who was 27 years old, about 6’ in height and generally well built. Michael gave the year as 1950s when he worked at the Fort as a maintenance man and plumber.

During the séance part of the session Michael was easily able to move the arms of the guests, mainly on command but also into unusual positions as well. Michael also proved that he was standing behind guests by pushing them and pulling them backwards.

Many of the guests felt cold spots and temperature fluctuations around them as well as tingling sensations. Some of the guests felt the full effect of Michael’s attention and swayed these guests in all directions. Some of the time Michael wanted to stroke the chins and faces of guests. Why never became clear.

I asked that Michael should do something different as a finale and although I had an idea (as did everyone) what was going to happen, as all our arms were being manipulated towards the centre of the circle like the musketeers “all for one” salute. Then out of nowhere we all were pushed to the right in a circular motion.

I then held an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment and guests asked Michael questions about him.

There were several responses but the clearest can be heard at:-


The second group to the same area Michael was present again, but this time a female energy called Chloe had also joined us. Chloe was about 5’8” in height, blonde and dressed in a Second World War army uniform. She told me that she was a gunner (Anti-Aircraft) at the Fort during the Second World War.

Once again all the guests were treated to some interesting arm movements, which for the second time that evening mostly on command plus the face and hair stroking that the first group encountered.

This session however there wasn’t much physical movement, although some guests did get pushed and pulled but not to the same extent as the first group.

Many guests reported that they felt numb as the spirit moved them. Shadows were also seen in the doorways and at time we all heard some very strange noises, which we could not fathom.


The third group to the counterscarp galleries felt the spirit energies of both Michael and Chloe. Once again many guests felt their arms being manipulated and for the second time this evening the majority of the guest’s arms were moved to form the “all for one” salute.

Some guests also had the urge to laugh a lot as the spirit energies neared to them. Both Michael and Chloe were responsible for this as well as pushing guests into each other which proved very amusing from our point of view.

At the end of this Séance I held another EVP experiment and once again there were lots of answers to the guests questions but the majority of the answers we (and our experts) could not work out exactly what was being said, however there is one clear answer which can be heard at:-


After we had completed our controlled sessions the guests were then able to go to any area of the fort that they wished under supervision from us, the majority went to continue with Ouija boards in two distinct areas of the Fort.

I and another team member went off to do our own EVP recordings and although I have nothing yet to show for it, we are still analysing the results as we recorded about 20 EVPs in the space of about 10 minutes. Early indications are that we have some extremely clear answers to our questions, which will be published on the website as soon as we can complete our analysis.

All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the level of spiritual activity was extremely high, we cannot wait to return to Fort Horsted in March 2013.
