A Winter Sunrise on the Prince of Wales Pier, Dover Harbour, Kent, England, UK

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Behind the frost-covered roof of the Harbour View Cafe is the Prince of Wales Pier Light, built in 1902. This lighthouse is a 46-feet high stone tower with a very quick flashing green light (VQ, 100+ flashes per minute). To the left of the cafe is the distant Admiralty Pier Light. The Western Entrance, English Channel, and Cliffs of France are further to the left. Port of Dover Tourism and Travel.

The Prince of Wales Pier was named after Edward VII who, as the Prince of Wales, laid the foundation stone in 1892. The pier opened in 1902.

The Admiralty Pier Light is located at the end of the 4000-feet long Admiralty Pier. It was built in 1908 and is a 72 feet high cast iron tower with a white flash every 7.5 seconds when in use. Operator: Dover Harbour Board.
