A view of Dover's Norman Castle taken from the Western Heights on March 15th '07 (about 5.15 pm).

There are three buildings on the horizon on the right hand side of the pic - the lefthand one is the remains of a Roman Pharos (lighthouse) built in AD 79, the two on the right are both part of St Mary-in-Castro (saxon).

Click to see the 'Floating Castle' - Dover Castle atop a fog bank taken from further along the Western Heights ridge at St Martin's Battery.

The above photo was taken on the 'outer side' of the dry moats surrounding the North Centre Bastion, part of Dover's "Forgotten Fortress".

Also see the Drop Redoubt, the Grand Shaft, the North Entrance, etc. - more info available via any of the images at these links.

Dover Castle appears in "Dover in World War Two: 1942", a ten minute British Ministry of Information film, released by the US Office of War Information, and narrated by the American journalist, Edward R. Murrow.

A low resolution version (relatively speaking) is available here.

I've uploaded the first two close-ups of Dover Castle. These are:

Constable's Tower and Canon's Gateway. Check the "Castle Tag" for later additions. Please note, search results are currently displayed in chronological order so close-ups will appear towards the bottom of the first page and then on subsequent pages.
