Fort Amherst ghost hunt 21st March 2015
Chatham, Kent

This was our second visit to this fort and we were hoping for the event to be just as active and interesting as the first event we held back in December 2014. We were not disappointed and the activity here only make us enthusiastic to return.

This time around the tech group were in the radio rooms at the bottom of the tunnel as this is the quietest area and the second group halfway up the tunnel and my group in the upper gun floor.

All of my sessions the same spirit was present, a young lad aged about 29 from recent times 1981 was the year given, who was a local lad who worked on building sites. Whether he worked at Fort Amherst is not known as he didn’t want to give his name. He was approximately 6’ in height, of an average build wearing a white T shirt and jeans and DM boots. For whatever reason the boots seemed to be more important but unfortunately why was not established.

The first group contained our regular ghost hunters, some of which are sceptics the male spirit was able to manipulate some people easily and lifted their arms and pushed and swayed them, whilst a couple of the sceptics felt their arms tingle, this was the first time that either had felt this sensation and they found it interesting as they could not explain or find a reason for the sensation. Several times Anita (guest on my right) was pushed backwards.

The second group also felt their arms being manipulated but it became apparent that the spirit wanted to do more and started to push people, sway them and gently rock them. A guest next to me could feel his knees twitching to the point that spirit wanted to make him touch the floor. On the other side of the circle another guest had the same sensation. After a lot of encouragement from the rest of the group both Curt and Darren were kneeling on the floor, however it was Darren that felt to full effect of the spirit and he ended up face down on the floor!

However the spirit tried to push Curt, me and Sarah (who was on my right) to the floor, it nearly worked although we were able to stay on our feet. Other guests in the group were not affected unfortunately.

The third group, were all our VIP guests for the night and because their group was the smallest they had more unique activity happen to them. The male spirit started by pushing and rocking everyone as well as moving the arms of a few. The best part though happened about 15 minutes into the séance. I was encouraging the spirit to do something to Jamie (as he booked the event for his friends). It took a while but eventually the spirit touched Jamie twice, once whilst other activity was going on, and again when Jamie was trying to explain what happened the first time around! Watch what happened at

There was also a female spirit present during the session although she didn’t interfere, she just watched and tittered when something funny happened. She was from the Victorian period because of what she was wearing, although she too did not give me her name.

This was an excellent ghost hunt and we as a team hope to return to the venue later in the year.

Fort Amherst – 13th December 2014 (Kerry)

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Fort Amherst 13th December 2014
Chatham, Kent

Equipment: Dowsing Rods, Pendulums and Ouija board
Area: Radio Room

1st Session

At the start of the session we used the rods and pendulums and each guest had a turn at using them. We all had lots of movement on these, and guests were getting responses to questions. Kym and one of the guests picked up on a short man called Bob, around 5’6”, with a moustache and short dark hair. Another guest kept feeling cold spots on her, although the room we were in was very warm.
During the Ouija session a spirit came through but we were unable to get any facts from them as the glass kept moving to No for every question we asked! Spirit made it clear they didn’t like us being there. Kym and Nick (guest) heard one of the metal beds in the room rattling. We then started calling out and listening for noises, to which there were two taps on the wall behind me, followed by a tap on the door and the metal urn. Nick wandered to the other end of the room by the door and heard a noise from behind it. At exactly the same time Kym saw a black shadow on the door.

2nd Session

We again started this session with the rods and pendulums and everyone experienced lots of movement and responses. Guests also mentioned feeling cold spots.
A French male spirit came through on the Ouija, who used to work at the Fort. There were several attempts to get his name but this couldn’t be determined, although we established his age as being 44. He seemed to like Gaynor (guest) to ask the questions and would respond better to her than anyone else. Gaynor said she kept being touched on her left shoulder and she sensed that he was near her as she felt cold on that side. We heard a whistle in the room so we asked spirit to copy our whistles to which they responded each time. One of the guests saw a flash at the end of the room by the door and when we asked the spirit via the Ouija if he was by the door, he responded with a Yes. The ghost pro also responded to confirm this. On leaving the room at the end of the session we all heard three successive groans behind us.

3rd Session

Lots of activity once again on the rods and pendulums. During the Ouija session a female spirit called Victoria came through. She was 28, died in 1925 and used to work at the Fort. She was happy to communicate with us and responded well to our questions. We heard two loud taps on one of the metal beds at the other end of the room, and we called out asking spirit to do it again, but they didn’t. I sensed there was someone standing by the door at the end of the room and when I asked if there was a spirit by the door, the glass moved to Yes.

4th Session

Once again people felt cold spots in the room during the rods and pendulums session, despite the room being the warmest in the Fort. A couple of the guests using the rods asked spirit to point them in the direction of where they were standing, and the rods moved round simultaneously to point in the same direction.
Through the Ouija in this session we connected with a male spirit called Nigel who was 27 years old. He said his wife was called Nancy, aged 28 and they had a 4 year old son called Stuart. There was lots of information coming through and we established that they all died from TB in 1907. He said both himself and his wife worked at the Fort, he was a soldier and she was a nurse.
