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.

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.

Weardale Manor Ruin, Brasted

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.

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.

Upnor Castle is an Elizabethan artillery fort located on the west bank of the River Medway in Kent. It is situated at the village of Upnor opposite the Chatham Dockyard, at the time a key naval facility, and was intended to protect both the dockyard and ships of the Royal Navy anchored in the Medway. It was constructed between 1559-67 on the orders of Elizabeth I during a period of tension with Spain and other European powers.

When the Dutch Republic mounted an unexpected naval raid in June 1667, the Dutch fleet was able to breach the English defences, captured two warships and burned others at anchor in the river at Chatham in what was one of the worst defeats ever suffered by the Royal Navy.

Upnor Castle became a naval ammunition depot, storing great quantities of gunpowder, ammunition and cannon to replenish the warships that came to Chatham for repair and resupply. It remained in military use until as late as 1945.

During the Second World War the castle was still in service as part of the Magazine Establishment and was damaged by two enemy bombs which fell in 1941. The bombing dislodged pieces of plaster in the castle's south tower and gatehouse, under which were discovered old graffiti including a drawing of a ship that has been dated to around 1700

The staff and visitors to the castle have seen and felt unexplainable phenomena, although this will be the second ghost hunt (the first was held in 2009) in the castle's 445 year lifespan.
