The Mandora Barracks was constructed in 1895 on the South Camp End of Aldershot located near the Cambridge Military Hospital. The majority of the barracks were demolished in 1970, with the exception of the Officer’s Mess which stands here today. The building was used by the Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps up until 1995.
Steeped in Military History come and join us in this Exclusive Paranormal Investigation to uncover the strange noises and voices that can be heard by staff at this truly active location. Shadow figures have been spotted around the building with a feeling of unease. Children’s laughter has been heard on many occasions by former tenants these are just some the recorded paranormal activity recorded at The Aldershot Former Officers Mess.
Working alongside our team you will get to take part in fascinating experiments such as table tipping, glass moving, vigils and Victorian séances along with the more modern ghost hunting techniques.
We cover both the Spiritual and Scientific sides of Paranormal Investigating and will give you the opportunity to try out some of the most popular electronic devices and together we will aim to uncover more history about the location and Spirits within

At approximately 11 pm, Atkins entered a cab with three men, two serving servicemen, based at The Officers Mess in Aldershot.
At 2.30am, a near-naked body was found in a nearby coppice near the Wellington Statue in Aldershot. The spectacle was horrifying, her head had been battered by jagged branches, her body smeared in blood, the scene reflecting how tenaciously she had fought for her life, despite being held down by her wrists.
When two of the soldiers returned in the early hours in their rooms, one man had asked to borrow a towel to wash his hands and another officer noticed they were bloodstained.
When questioned, neither men, denied they had been broken out of the barracks rooms and had been in the company of Atkins. A search in the vicinity of the Officers Mess led to the recovery of her shoes, and as a consequence, the two men were charged with murder.
They appeared before Mr. Justice Willis at Hampshire Assizes on November 24, and at 8 am on December 16 that the two men walked the 30 yards from the condemned cell to the shadows of the gallows.
As the rope was fastened around his neck, one of the soldiers acknowledged: “Before I pass from this world, I confess I helped to do it.”…
