The Hidden Houses of East Cliff below Dover Castle, Kent, England, UK

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

When this area of land at the base of the White Cliffs of Dover was first built upon it was considered "extra-parochial" (ie not subject to municipal rates), but that didn't last long, of course! 57 and 58 are the "First and Last" pub (ex-Albion). Unseen on the left are the rear entrances to much grander properties that front onto "East Cliff (Marine Parade)". An Urban Dover photo.

Former inhabitants of the "grander properties" include Charles Lightoller at 8 East Cliff (senior surviving officer of the 1912 RMS Titanic maritime disaster) and the British Army's Sir Henry Le Geyt Bruce KCB at 1 East Cliff (a Victorian Knight).

I like the "washed-out" effect that shooting into the sun gives (pity about the clouds, though!)
