Fort Amherst Ghost Hunt | Chatham | Kent

Join Haunted Evenings as we explore the hidden tunnels within Britain’s largest Napoleonic Fortress. With so much history to this large site it's little wonder many visitors have encountered strange goings on when deep within the Forts tunnels. Used during the Napoleonic war for shelter, storage and defence as well as an operational base during World War II, this location provides the perfect spot to go ghost hunting! Armed with all the very latest equipment, guests will get to experience new and old ghost hunting vigils throughout the night, as well as have an opportunity (for the brave) to go it alone! This is your night and we welcome (and dare you) all to join us on an intense but fun night of ghost hunting at Fort Amherst. What will you experience?!

Ghost Hunting at the Tunnels!

Your overnight ghost hunt will see you split down into small unnerving groups down in the depths of the Fort Amherst tunnels to try your hand at a variety of new and old experiments, from being able to take off and use the latest equipment (thermal cameras, SLS Kinect system, shadow detectors, Mel meters etc) to getting fully immersed in traditional vigils such as glass divination, table tipping and human pendulums. It's been reported that shadows have often been seen within the tunnels, disembodied voices heard of females and old soldiers seen. This site is a fascinating place to walk around and has an eerie feel to it. Will you be brave enough to take on the challenge of a lone vigil?

Spoiler / Event Review


As part of our last weekends events of the year (wow this year has flown!) Haunted Evenings headed south to Chatham where Fort Amherst awaited invasion from the team and guests! Fort Amherst, a disorientating labyrinth of limestone chiseled tunnels dates back to 1756 and has several areas to explore, including a large upper level room, a world war 2 area and several winding tunnels.
Guests spent time in all areas, taking part in an array of both traditional and equipment based vigils. During Ouija board sessions, one group gained contact with 2 child spirits (aged 3 (Bertie) and 5 (Jude) as well as 65 year old war time Officer. A personal connection was also experienced for one guest. In a further ouija session, a Dutch character called Bill came through who wanted us to leave.
In the upper levels of the old Fort, a class EVP was captured which stated “leave” when we asked if they wished us to stay or leave, as well as movement on the vibe pods and energy spots detected via dowsing rods.
A further human pendulum experiment left a few guests on edge as they felt touched by spirit down in the main tunnels as well as some grainy EVP’s telling us to “Get Out”
In the WWII area possible poltergeist activity was experienced as an object mysteriously fell to the floor when everyone was still as well as a loud door bang. Both were confirmed by location staff as phenomena they had experienced before.
Thank you to all the guests who braved the dipping temperatures to experience this fascinating location, you were all up for the challenge making it a night we won’t forget in a hurry!
