The photo was taken at 8.30 am on Friday, 15th of February, 2013, while on a cycle ride from Robsons Yard. The foreground road is the A20 dual carraigeway that terminates out-of-shot to the right at:

East Cliff Marine Parade is approximately 275 yards long and looks out over the seafront, beach, and harbour to the English Channel beyond. The distant microwave tower of Dover Coast Guard Station is visible above the houses about half-way to the right-hand edge of the photo. The southernmost grounds of Dover Castle end at the cliff-top at the very edge of which is:

The First World War Admiralty Look Out and Port War Signal Station

The road behind East Cliff Marine Parade is known simply as "East Cliff". Nestling on the far side at the bottom of this part of the White Cliffs of Dover is a far more modest row of dwellings. See:
