Next Investigation Dover Castle On 31/10/2020
Kent Paranormal is attending a paranormal investigation hosted by Ghost Hunter Tours at Dover Castle in Kent. Dover Castle is a Medieval castle built in the 12th Century in Kent, England. Records show there has been a fortified site here since Saxon times, and its key defensive position has seen it in the past often referred to as the “Key to England”. Built to protect England’s shores from marauding pirates and later, Napoleon’s army, it’s now best known for its role in WWII and its ‘secret’ underground command centre, often frequented by Winston Churchill when he was Prime Minister. The battlements are said to be haunted by the headless ghost of a drummer boy who was murdered during an errand involving a large sum of money. It is believed the boy was decapitated by his assailants who took the money that he was carrying. His decapitated spirit has been seen numerous times across the castle grounds, often heard banging his drum. Within the stone walls of the old keep, the apparition of a woman in a red dress has been seen, as well as a cavalier. In the ‘secret’ underground tunnels, the ghosts of World War II soldiers have been seen and felt, going about their daily duties. It was here that an American couple heard violent screams and cries for help. Believing the sounds where part of a re-enactment, they were startled when they were told there were no events happening that day. Disembodied voices have been heard during the night, doors have often been witnessed opening and closing of their own accord. Sudden unexplained drops in temperature has also been reported.
Next Investigation Deal Castle On 08/02/2020
Kent Paranormal is attending an event hosted by Ghost Hunter Tours at Deal Castle on the 08/02/2020. In 1539, Henry VIII’s preparations for war included a huge construction programme of new artillery forts on the south and east coasts of England. Three castles were to protect the vulnerable beaches around Deal and the Downs, an important naval offshore anchorage. These castles were a response to an invasion threat that resulted from Henry VIII’s foreign policy, particularly his involvement in the struggle between Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor (reigned 1516–56), and Francis I, King of France (r.1515–47). By 1539, Henry’s conduct in his divorce from Catherine of Aragon, in the destruction of monasteries and in taking control of the Church in England, had resulted in their alliance against him, urged on by an enraged Pope. The Downs castles were completed in October 1540, and by the end of Henry’s reign in 1547 Deal was one of 42 new artillery forts that protected ports, anchorages and estuaries. Those built in the first few years, including Deal, adopted a form that enabled all-round defence, and were planned and built by the staff of Henry’s Works departments. They are beautiful architectural designs, intricately and scientifically planned to concentrate the fire of heavy guns against ships, while also enabling close defence against a land force. Deal Castle had guns mounted in five tiers.
