Trip to Dover

Dover

Taking the road A2 in to Dover, the descent to the busiest port in the UK ends with the sighting of the White Cliffs, which are so symbolic.  

I spent some time wandering around near the port at dusk, enabling me to capture some beautiful images of the sun setting over the South Eastern foot of England.

I stayed overnight in St. Margaret’s Bay, which is nearby, the next day, I took a walk to the edge of the cliffs and had a wonder round the old WWII Army Bunker, there is one right at the edge, which is connected via underground tunnel to another which is a lot further inland. There is still visible signs of the war, from Bullet holes to the location of the big guns.

The photo above was taken on a section that appears to be coming away, with obvious visible cracks, I had to lay forward right at the edge to get this shot, but I’m certain this section which is about 20 feet will fall away at some point.

The next day, I spent some time looking around Sandwich, a cute little place with a lot of history, although the whole area does seem to feel like another world. There is a beautiful little Marina with a moving bridge that is definitely worth a look. It was while I was there, that I heard there was a road sign somewhere that had both Sandwich and Ham written on it, however there is only one and it has been stolen as a souvenir on several occasions. It took a lot of searching, but eventually I found it and got the statutory photo with it.
