Fort Horsted has many subterranean tunnels with sightings of Shadow Figures, Stones being thrown at unsuspecting guests, Loud Whistling and Screams. An incredible labyrinth of tunnels and buildings said to be haunted by very active spirits awaits you!  As seen on the hit TV show “Ghost Adventures”!  This certainly isn’t a place for the faint hearted.

On 11th March 2023 the Fright Nights Norfolk and Suffolk team will be staging their first event in Kent at Fort Horsted.  In the mid 1800’s it was decided that Chatham Dockyards would be the place where new sophisticated war ships would be built, but with Napoleon waging war across Europe and the rise of Imperial Germany, Chatham needed some defences and Fort Horsted along with four other forts were built to provide that defence.

Completed in 1889 Fort Horsted lies in the Horsted Valley to the south of Chatham and built on the site Anglo-Saxon settlement. During construction, convicts from Borstal, supervised by the Royal Engineers, were brought in to keep the costs down and with several accidents and fatalities occurring at the time, it’s no wonder why this place is so haunted.

Constructed in the shape of a six sided arrow head, with each flank protected by machine guns in the counterscarp galleries, the Fort would have been home to a garrison of approximately 400 men and women.

However by the early 1990s the Fort was all but deserted, derelict and in much need of attention. The fort was put up for auction and purchased by Avondale who started to run the fort as a business office while retaining its original historical features.

The Fort has had a local reputation for being very haunted and has for many years attracted the attention of Fright Nights, Britain’s most popular and original ghost hunting company.

Its hauntings are numerous and said to include:

* A large, shaggy black dog seen wandering the tunnels * A little girl whose voice has been recorded by visitors * Shadowy figures witnessed in the tunnels * Areas so scary that security guards refuse to visit! * A negative energy that is said to make visitors feel uncomfortable, sickly and very nervous * Spectres of a mother and child seen walking the grounds in very old clothing
