The second of three views (first, third) showing the approach to the Louis Bleriot Memorial (located in Northfall Meadow behind Dover Castle) from the southwest.

Take the lefthand turning at the y-junction in the above phot/image. This turning is only a short way along from where the first approach image/photo was taken.

This image/photo was taken on March 25th, 2007 - it will look somewhat different later in the year.

The Memorial can also be accessed from the NNE by a path starting at the junction of the short spur road leading off of Upper Road - just expand the satellite view on the right.

All of the photos of the actual memorial (such as this one) contain a description of Bleriot, the Bleriot XI monoplane, and his July 25th 1909 historic flight across the English Channel.

Also see Dover's statue of Charles Stewart Rolls, co-founder of Rolls Royce motor cars which commemorates his non-stop flight across the English Channel and back on June 2nd, 1910.
