This is a zoomed image of 600 yards to the York Street Roundabout. If you've clicked on a Google Earth icon to get here, it can be mistaken for the Prince of Wales Roundabout that is only 100 yards away. Unfortunately, the cliff-edge is quite unapproachable - especially if you need glasses, like I do - so no overhead views of the P of W roundabout are available. Right, back to business:

A similar view taken when it was really dark:

The beige-coloured hotel in the top right-hand corner is only 40 yards away from the pebble beach that is hidden by the foreground trees. See:

Waves breaking over the Seawall of Dover Harbour

The proximity of the Gateway apartments to the seaside is shown in:

Pebble Beach, Seafront, Gateway Flats, and Dover Castle

Above the Gateway Flats and Premier Inn, still hidden in the dawning light, is part of one of England's icons:

Between Cambridge Terrace and the seafront promenade is one of the town's war memorials:

Indian Mutiny Rifles Monument, Camden Square

A view of the non-tidal Wellington Dock, part of Dover Marina and a Listed Building:

A modern view of the derelict former library building:

The Roman Severus Gate (also known as Boldware Gate) lies beneath the A20 just above the roundabout. Townwall Street is so named because it originally followed the line of the medieval town walls.

The photo also has part-views of: The White Horse Inn, Old St James the Apostle Church, Bench Street, Victoria Park, and Castle Hill Road (leads to Dover Castle.
