Landguard Fort was built just outside Felixstowe, Suffolk, at the mouth of the River Orwell, Landguard Fort was designed to guard the entrance to Harwich. The first fortifications from 1540 were a few earthworks and blockhouse, but it was James I of England who ordered the construction of a square fort with bulwarks at each corner.

In 1667 the Dutch landed a force of 1500 men on Felixstowe beach and advanced on the fort, but were repulsed by a garrison of 400 musketeers of the Duke of York & Albany's Maritime Regiment (the first English Marines) and 100 artillerymen with 54 cannon. The fort was considered part of Essex in the 18th and 19th centuries; births and deaths within the garrison were recorded as 'Landguard Fort, Essex'.

A new Fort battery was built in 1717, and a complete new fort on an adjoining site was started in 1745 to a pentagonal bastioned trace. New batteries were built in the 1750s and 1780, but the biggest change was in the 1870s where the interior barracks were rebuilt to a keep-like design, the river frontage was rebuilt with a new casemated battery covered by a very unusual caponier with a quarter sphere bomb proof nose. Several open bastions were enclosed, and a mock ravelin block constructed to house a submarine mining contingent.

During the Second World War, it was used as one of the balloon launch sites of Operation Outward. This was a project to attack Germany by means of free-flying hydrogen balloons that carried incendiary devices or trailing steel wires (intended to damage power lines.)

The 10inch gun pit in Left Battery was converted into a Anti-aircraft Operations Room for Harwich in 1939. Visitors as well as local people, have their own experiences of paranormal activity in or around the Fort. The most common being the image of a sailor looking out of the top right window (the side visible from the road). Most reportings were in the 1990s, but occasionally there are still reports of lights at night and being "pushed" whilst visiting the top floors.

Fort Borstal, Rochester, Kent was built as an afterthought from the 1859 Royal Commission on the Defence of the United Kingdom, by convict labour between 1875 and 1885, to hold the high ground southwest of Rochester, South East England.

During the First World War the fort was used as a stop off point for troops and stores travelling to France, as was Fort Amherst nearby, after this the fort was used by a T. A. unit, namely the 166 City of Rochester Battery Royal Artillery, for training. The fort was also occupied by a detachment of the Royal Marines from nearby Chatham.

In the Second World War four 4.5" anti-aircraft guns were installed above the front casemates, each gun was set into a permanent concrete emplacement. Ammunition was transported to the guns via a light railway. The fire control post was situated above the rear casemates, most of the casemates were used as magazines for the A.A guns ammunition. During this time many locals believed Fort Borstal was the home of a 'Big Bertha' Gun, this belief was due to the guns being electronically fired simultaneously giving off a massive boom and sounding like just one large gun being fired. The gunners were accommodated within the fort but other personnel stationed here were housed in a large hutted camp just outside the entrance where the NAAFI could be found.

After the war the fort fell under the Royal Artillery Care and Maintenance Unit. The fort was taken over by the Home Office in 1961 and into the care of the Borstal Institution where it was used as a pigsty and store.

Since the Fort has been under private ownership we are the only paranormal company to investigate this Fort.

The Brook Red Lion Hotel in Colchester, Essex is a historical Grade I listed building dating back to 1465. Located in the busy town centre of Colchester, Britain's oldest recorded town, The Brook Red Lion Hotel in Colchester is one of the oldest inns in the area.

The Parliament Restaurant at the Red Lion Hotel was once the old Banqueting Hall, still showing its timbered beams.

There are three known ghosts - a small boy that can be seen in the Parliament restaurant occassionally and has appeared in a guest's photograph, a ghostly monk that hangs around in reception, but the most active is Alice Millar.
Alice was a chambermaid at the hotel and was killed by a lover.
Alice has regularly been heard whispering and even talking to staff. There are recent accounts of people's hair being pulled and a womans voice appearing on a video taken in one of the rooms, with no obvious cause.

The original rooms still have their original wattle and daub beams. They are also, obviously, the most haunted.

The Explosion Museum (Priddy's Hard), Gosport was originally bought in 1750 by the Board of Ordnance from Jane Priddy (hence Priddy's Hard) and others to construct the defences of Portsmouth Harbour and the Dockyard. The defences were completed in 1756. Soon afterwards the gunpowder stores were relocated from Portsmouth to Priddy's Hard for safety reasons and in 1771 a magazine, office and cooperage were constructed. Officer's houses and large gardens were added in 1777.

In 1805 the Grand Magazine on the site was used to store Gunpowder that was delivered to Priddy's Hard from Waltham Abbey. Gunpowder was transported from this Magazine to the Trafalgar Fleet via a Camber Dock, the Fleet included Nelson's Flagship HMS Victory.

In 1861 C Magazine was built and in 1879 the largest magazine, E Magazine was built. During the 1860s the fortifications were strengthened incorporating brick gateways, carponniers and or covered firing positions to cover the moats, Armstrong guns were fitted to the two demi-bastions.

The site was fully utilised during the Second World War and was last used for significant naval activity during the Falklands Conflict in 1982, the site remained active until 1988.

Twelve untimely deaths have happened at Priddy's Hard as a result of accidental explosions and in one case an "unnatural" gust of wind, rumoured to be the evil spirit of a convict labourer who died in the same spot.

Sightings of the unfortunate souls have been rumoured by former workers of the Royal Navy Armaments Depot over the years including security guards that have looked after the listed buildings.
