Once known as the 'Key to England', Dover is one of the country's most important ports and has been at the forefront of this island's history from the earliest times. This has left a rich legacy of buildings from the Roman times to the present day. With its Roman Pharos lighthouse still standing on the famous white cliffs, and 'Painted House', Dover has many medieval structures both ecclesiastical and secular, including the famous castle, perhaps the finest in England. Later threats of invasion have also shaped Dover, visible in its Napoleonic, World War and Cold War defences. Dover's commercial, business and administrative history can be seen in its mills, lighthouses, institutional buildings, the development of the busy commercial harbour, the coming of the Channel Tunnel, its modern architecture, seafront hotels and the Cruise Terminal.


Dover in 50 Buildings charts the history of this fascinating part of Kent through a selection of its most interesting buildings and structures, including less well known buildings tucked away, showing the changes that have taken place over the years. The book will appeal to all those who live in Dover or who have an interest in the area.
