Ghost Hunt – Saturday 17th – Sunday 18th August - Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker, Kelvedon Hatch, Brentwood, Essex, CM15 0LA
Join us at The Secret Nuclear Bunker in Essex. This underground building creates the perfect setting for a Ghost Hunt. 125 feet under the group and with no natural light you will be immersed in pitch darkness, but what will you encounter? The building was originally built in case of invasion but luckily it was never used. The building is very haunted with several Ghosts spotted regularly. Although never used for its intended construction it is still home to the ghost of the mysterious hard hat. He was a worker who apparently died in an accident involving concreting. This atmospheric venue has been featured on TV shows including Most Haunted and Great British Ghosts and now it’s your chance to experience it for yourselves!
