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.

SOLD OUT

Fort Horsted was the largest of the five forts designed to defend Chatham's eastern and southern approaches. Many changes were made to the original design of Horsted since its inception in the 1860's. Most noticeably Fort Horsted does not have caponiers or other exposed external features clearly visible in earlier works such as the Drop Redoubt in Dover. This was due to the development of high explosive shells in the intervening period between the 1860's and the eventual construction some twenty years later. Fort Horsted was finished by 1889, but never received the full compliment of armament she was designed for. In 1902 Fort Horsted was mounted with seven machine guns. In the Second World War AA guns were mounted at the Fort.

During the site visit we came across some areas which were unpleasant for any length of time, just had that feeling that you wanted to get out!

Other areas were spooky as we felt that we were being watched and in one particular tunnel the feeling of being escorted out!

This is a highly active place with many tunnels and rooms which have been untouched for several years. This place oozes spiritual activity!
Reported paranormal activity:-
- A little girl whose voice has been recorded by visitors
- Shadowy figures witnessed in the tunnels
- Areas so scary that people refuse to visit!
- Sounds of people approaching, and no-one arrives
- Mumbling or talking sounds in the tunnels
- Spirits that make people laugh for no reason at all!
One not to be missed

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.

Deal Timeball is a Victorian maritime Greenwich Mean Time signal located on the roof of a waterfront four-storey tower in the coastal town of Deal, in Kent. It was established in 1855 by the Astronomer Royal George Biddell Airy in collaboration with Charles V. Walker, superintendent of telegraphs for the South Eastern Railway Company. It was built by the Lambeth firm of engineers Maudslay and Field. The timeball, which, like the Greenwich timeball, fell at 1 pm precisely, was triggered by an electric signal directly from the Royal Observatory.

Before it became a timeball tower, the tower was a semaphore tower used to signal to the ships at anchor in the Dover channel.

From 1821 to 1831, the Tower carried a semaphore mast, which was used by the Coast Blockade for the Suppression of Smuggling to pass information along the coast. The Blockade was under the auspices of the Navy, and was manned by their personnel.

The Timeball Tower stands on the site of an earlier Shutter Telegraph. Ths was one of a chain of telegraph stations between the Admiralty in London and the Naval Yard at Deal. The telegraph line opened in 1796 and closed in 1814. Its purpose was to allow rapid communication between London and Deal, the latter being an important Naval anchorage during the Napoleonic Wars.

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!

Oldbury Hill and Styants Wood, nr Sevenoaks.

On the summit of Oldbury Hill, commanding a powerfully defensive position, is one of the finest Iron Age hill-forts in the Medway, with substantial earth ramparts two miles in length. The huge Iron Age fort was built sometime between 150 and 50 BC. Ancient woodland, scrub and relic heathland disguise its complete outline.

The small caves and shallow rock shelters in the sandstone ridge were probably used by paleolithic man.

Fort Amherst in Chatham, Kent was built to protect Chatham Dockyard after the invasion by the Dutch in 1667 which raided the River Medway and attacked Chatham's Royal Dockyard.

In 1708 plans were beginning to be drawn up to construct a fortification to protect the Royal Dockyard from a land based attack.
In 1714 land was bought for the construction of the fortifications but work did not start until 1755.
Part of the site chosen included a chalk pit with a number of caves. These caves were extended between 1776 and 1805 to provide an underground labyrinth of tunnels, protected underground gun positions and protection in the event of a siege. The tunnels contain many interesting and important features including a well, privies, loopholed defences, cannon positions and defendable gateways.
To ensure the protection of the Dockyard, three defendable gateways were constructed to control and defend access into the area protected by the Chatham Lines.

In 1820 the defences were declared obsolete due to better artillery equipment with a greater firing range. The whole of the fortifications were used as a training ground during the Victorian period, the practice sieges were so popular that thousands of people came to Chatham to watch them.

During WWII the tunnels were utilised by the Anti-Invasion Planning Unit and Civil Defence, who used a section as their headquarters. This is where Civil Defence was co-ordinated for the North Kent area in the event of bombing as well as support and assistance to the general public after such an incident. A section of the tunnels has been reconstructed into the Civil Defence HQ as it was in 1939.
