The Gate of England: Dover From the Western Heights, and Lydden

The Gate of England: Dover From the Western Heights, and Lydden

The old road that once brought all travellers from London end? at Dover (bottom), and the Waterway to the Continent begins. No better view can be obtained of the town, the piers arid wide-spreading harbour than that from the western heights. It is only recently that the naval works have been completed by the Great National Harbour. On the western heights one may see the excavated foundations of one of seven English "round churches". One passes Lydden (top) about four miles short of Dover.
