History of Fisher Gate
Fisher Gate is a Grade 1 listed building; it originally formed part of the town's defences and is now the only remaining medieval gateway to the town. Fisher Gate symbolically marked its territory as an entry and exit point to this significant town and port, it formed part of the, then, medieval defences which encircled the town with a rampart and an external ditch.
The lower portion of Fisher Gate, the gateway was built in about 1384. It is three storeys high, although the top floors were added in about 1578.
Sandwich played a part in the Barons' Wars and in the late 13th century. In 1385 the constable of Dover Castle gave instructions for the fortification of Sandwich.
Despite the town defences, Sandwich was sacked by the French in August 1457 to pillage the town, in the process murdering the mayor, John Drury. There were six fortified gates into Sandwich, only this one remains.
Fisher Gate is a building that has witnessed hundreds of years of history and leaves the footprints of its countless visitors. There are rumours that Elizabeth rested in this building during her visit to Sandwich and it is also thought to be likely that Archbishop Thomas Becket passed through on his way to give thanks at St Clement's.
The Port of Sandwich is no stranger to odd events in English history. It was here in 1255 that the first captive elephant was landed in England.
This is a dual venue event, which means you will spend time here and at The Guildhall in Sandwich, they are a 5-10 minute walk away
One not to be missed!

What Happens at the Event
Our events are always 100% investigation and vigil events, we won't waste time by taking you on a history tour of the venue.
We will not usually talk about the history of the building unless people ask us to do so.
We don't hold workshops or briefing on equipment usage. Any equipment that you will be using throughout the event will be explained at the start of each session by our team leaders.
For the first few hours (usually 1 hour per session) you will be in a group and you will spend time with our Mediums doing séances, where they will try to get the active spirit to move you in some way (this is not designed to scare you) and with our paranormal investigators doing experiments, table tilting, glass divination, Ouija boards, EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments and other equipment experiments using the latest ghost hunting equipment.
After these controlled sessions you will have the opportunity to venture off on your own or in small groups to explore the venue or to hold lone vigils or re-visiting an activity that you enjoyed in our controlled sessions. In this part of the night you can use our ghost hunting equipment to do your own ghost hunt. You may take photos/videos with your own cameras throughout our ghost hunts. You may also use any of your own ghost hunting equipment during our controlled sessions.
