The Old Beneficiary School, Portsmouth, Hampshire was originally built in 1784 by the Beneficial Society, as a public hall and charity school for poor boys.

The downstairs floor serving as the classroom and the upstairs being used by the Beneficial Society for meetings, concerts and theatre. The school applied a very disciplinarian attitude to education and, indeed, a hook to which children were tied to receive punishment by the birch is still present amongst many of the original features.

It was not until 1837 that the previously boys only school, was opened to girls and a junior school was also formed in 1873. The school had to be closed in 1939 due to the outbreak of Second World War and it is said that a Nazi sympathiser used the roof of the school to direct, through a torch, bombers seeking to hit the Portsmouth Dockyards.

The school finally closed in 1962 becoming a youth training centre before opening in 2010 as the Groundlings Theatre.

In 1812, whilst attending a dance in the building, Elizabeth Dickens went into labour and shortly afterwards gave birth to her son Charles Dickens.
The man who became the Premier of South Australia 7 times and after whom Ayres Rock was names, Henry Ayres, was a pupil at this school.

It is thought that there are up to 9 active spirits; the ghost of "little George" on the staircase and Emily in the classroom. Laughing children have been heard upstairs, not to mention the cheeky poltergeist who has been known to play tricks by moving objects.

PRIVATE EVENT

The Explosion Museum (Priddy's Hard), Portsmouth 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.

The Museum of Army Flying first opened as a Flying Training School by the Royal Air Force (RAF) in 1940, although originally intended as a bomber airfield it became operational in June 1940 with the arrival of No 609 Fighter Squadron RAF.

The airfield was part of 10 Fighter Group during the Battle of Britain and suffered many air raids.
In 1945 the Station was transferred to the Royal Navy and became HMS Flycatcher, it reverted to the RAF in 1946. In 1947, No 227 Operational Conversion Unit, later to be known as the Light Aircraft School, moved in accompanied by 657 AOP Squadron.

In 1957 the Army Air Corps came into being absorbing what was then known as the AOP School and Light Liaison Units.

The Museum of Army Flying was officially opened in 1984.

Ghostly activity:-
- The ghost of a lady riding her bike from the Second World War era. She has been seen in the building and around the airfield.
- A small boy has been seen sat in a display helicopter.
- Phantom footsteps have been heard and shadows seen in the museum building.

The D Day Tunnels (Underground World War Two Command Centre) in Portsmouth, Hampshire has about 1.5 miles of linked tunnels directly beneath Fort Southwick and they were excavated by the Royal Engineers in 1942. These tunnels provided a bombproof, comprehensive Operation Control Centre.

The tunnels housed approximately 700 staff working on the Combined Operations Headquarters and the co-ordination of various military operations including the now famous "Operation Overlord" the codename for the D-Day Normandy Landings by Allied troops during the Second World War.

Reports from radar stations were crossed-referenced with messages from shipping to provide an accurate picture of what was happening in the English Channel. This information was then plotted on a large table map in the map room of the tunnel. Some of the functions of this Underground Command Centre were duplicated at the Bunker underneath Dover Castle.

After the war the tunnels ceased operations in 1949 then reopened again by the Royal Navy during the 1956 Suez Crisis when it was refurbished, they were used again in the early 1960s during the Cold War as the Defence Teleprinter Network of the NATO Communication Organisation and as a Communications Centre "COMMCEN" for the Royal Navy. During this time the Soviet Union identified Fort Southwick as a "Category A" target and consequently it was a main target for the Russians. The Command Centre Bunker remained in use right up until 1974.

During the history of the tunnels, deaths have been reported at this secret and important location. Many of the tunnel linings have been removed over the years exposing the original chalk walls, which gives the tunnels its eerie sensations.

The existence of the D Day Tunnels (Underground Second World War Command Centre) and its D-Day and Cold War connections was a closely guarded secret. The entrance to these tunnels are very uninteresting and unimposing.

Distant chilling screams are often heard as well as Spirit voices and strange aromas smelt in various parts of the tunnels.
