Marwell Hall is a Grade I listed building originally built in 1320 by Walter Woodlock and largely rebuilt in 1816 by William Long. In the 1500s, the Hall belonged to the Seymour family, and there is a local tradition that Henry VIII married Lady Jane Seymour here.

There are many stories of ghostly happenings in and around the Hall. Probably the most famous is the story of the 'Mistletoe Bride'. On her wedding day, while playing hide and seek with her groom and guests, the bride hid in an oak chest in a remote corner of the hall. She was unable to get out of the self-locking chest. The groom and guests searched high and low, but her cries were not heard and her remains were found many years later. It is the wedding guests who can be heard frantically rushing around the corridors searching for the missing bride.

Jane Seymour, one of the wives of King Henry VIII, is said to haunt the corridors of the Hall, as does his previous wife, Ann Boleyn. She reputedly haunts the Yew Walk, behind the Hall, planning her revenge on Miss Seymour.

Another ghostly story involves the sounds of bumps and voices coming from one of the bedrooms at night. The noises are reputedly the sounds of barrels and cases of smuggled goods being pushed along the floor and down a secret staircase.

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor, Westerham

In 1295, Robert Toys paid 12d to the Manor of Otford for the right to keep pigs in Otford Woods and it is likely that he or his family gave their name to this area of Brasted Chart. Toys Hill was part of the Common of Brasted Chart where local people kept pigs and cattle, gathered peat and firewood and quarried Chertstone for their roads and buildings.

In 1906 Philip Stanhope, 1st Baron Weardale, built a substantial house here - the highest point on the greensand ridge north of the weald. From this high vantage point four counties can be seem. Little is known of the house other than it had 145 rooms and contained a magnificent 12ft wide mahogany staircase. It was only used in the summer months. After his death the house quickly fell into disrepair and by 1939 was a derelict ruin. The house was demolished at the start of WW2 as it was belived that it would be a navigational aid for any German bombers wishing to target Chartwell, the residence of the Winston Churchill, which was directly west of the house, less than 1 mile away. The foundations and garden terrace are still visible today.

All that remains of Weardale is a lawn and terrace. Weardale Manor was a grand house, country home to Lord and Lady Weardale in the early part of the twentieth century.

The Bat Tower was the inspiration of the National Trust. They felt the disused water tower could be turned into a hibernation site for bats. The Tower was built in 1906 and stands at the highest point on the Greensand Ridge in Kent.

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.
This is a special Halloween ghost hunt which includes a themed buffet and non-stop ghost hunting

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.
Because it's Halloween, more of the Fort will be available for us to investigate

Port Lympne Mansion, at Lympne, Kent is an early twentieth-century country house built for Sir Philip Sassoon by Herbert Baker and Philip Tilden. Completed after the First World War, it was abandoned after the Second World War, following Sassoon's death in 1939. In 1941 the house was commandeered by the Royal Air Force and pilots used the Mansion as billets and their Mess. In 1946 the Mansion was purchased by Colonel Waite and Mrs Waite. In 1973, it was purchased by John Aspinall as part of an expansion of his Howletts Zoo. The house is a listed building.

Many famous and well-known people partied at the house in its heyday; Visitors to the house included the actors Charlie Chaplin, Lawrence of Arabia, Prince of Wales (VIII) and Mrs Simpson, Duke of York (George VI) Lord Louis Mountbatten, Lord Curzon, Lord Rocksavage, who was married to Sybil Sassoon, Philip's sister and a Romanian aristocrat, Princess Marthe Bibesco, a prolific author of novels and memoirs; Alice Dudeney, George Bernard Shaw, and Osbert Sitwell, Giles Lytton Strachey, a British writer and critic; Sir Harold Nicolson KCVO CMG, an English diplomat, author, diarist and politician along with the writer Vita Sackville-West; Marie Adelaide Belloc Lowndes and Maurice Baring. Politicians included Sir Douglas Haig, Sir Winston Churchill and his wife Clementine Churchill, Baroness Spencer-Churchill, Prime Minister Asquith, David Lloyd George and Alexandre Millerand.

Cursed relics from Tutankhamun's tomb, a white lady who walks the grounds and a Roman centurion who wanders with his throat cut. These are just some of the apparitions unearthed at Port Lympne.

When the main house was being built and they were digging up the driveway, builders discovered two bodies, believed to be from the Roman era, and they had their throats cut!
A Roman centurion has been seen walking the length of the estate.

Howard Carter (a friend of Sassoon), who discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in Egypt's Valley of the Kings donated two plaques from the tomb which now flank the upper part of the gardens.

And finally there are toilets in the Mansion that some people will not go into because they feel like someone's watching them!
