Nothe Fort is known as the "museum of coastal defense" and is the premier heritage attraction in the seaside town of Weymouth. The fort was ordered by former Prime Minister, Lord Palmerston in 1860 to protect the Dorset coast from foreign invasion. It was fully operational 12 years later in 1872.

Today the fort boasts growing visitor numbers year on year and an impressive school education programme run by a small team of staff and an army of volunteers.

Nothe Fort has consecutively won Gold at the 2021 and 2022 Dorset Tourism Awards in the 'Best Small Visitor Attraction' category. 

2023 sees our eighth year of working in an advisory capacity with the fort. As well as conducting our own background research our role is to organise and manage visiting paranormal event teams.

David Goulden Said: 

"In our private research, the team has been working with locations for nearly 20 years now. We have always put the interests of the locations at the forefront of what we do. When we started I thought we would always be banging on the doors to be let into places. I am super proud that by doing the right thing by the locations and protecting their interests we have built this position of trust and are now often invited in.

Stemming from this over the last 8 years, we have organically branched out into managing the reputational heritage at 3 historic locations in Dorset as well as the visiting paranormal teams. Our role is to advise when approached by the locations and to promote a positive impression of the paranormal field to the general public. Public perception and the paranormal is something that we are very passionate about."

We are proud that these opportunities also mean that we can play a little part in generating much-needed revenue for the locations. As charities, these funds make a big contribution to their future preservation which guarantees their survival for future generations to enjoy.
