Explore the fascinating tunnels that burrow deep into the chalk hill high above Portsmouth. Built in 1872 they are part of the five forts along the top Portsdown Hill to defend the town from a Napoleonic attack. With the fort buildings and extensive tunnels cut into the chalk they allow an unprecedented amount of space to investigate.
With experiments especially designed for the location this is an investigation not to be missed.
Join Dark Encounters as we carry out a comprehensive paranormal investigation of the site. You will get to investigate for yourselves; setting up experiments, carrying out the experiments and recording your observations. So whether it is a lone vigil in a tunnel, EVP experiments in one of the caponiers, or Dowsing experiments on the parade ground you will be in the heart of the action. At the beginning of your evening you will have a briefing on ghost hunting techniques and the plan for the evening. Then you will split into smaller groups to carry out the investigation. The teams will be led by experience investigators who will guide you to the correct areas and how to set up the experiments. There will be regular refreshment breaks and then at the end of the evening all teams will have a debriefing as we report the evidence recorded. We will be looking for correlations of phenomena between the groups and previous investigations we have carried out at the location - all recorded in the Casebook of Dark Encounters from the past fifteen years.
