The final stop on this Kent tour was the great medieval fortress of Dover. Commanding the shortest sea crossing between England and the continent, Dover Castle boasts a long and immensely eventful history. Its spectacular site above the famous 'White Cliffs' was originally an Iron Age hill fort, and still houses a Roman lighthouse, one of the best preserved in Europe. The Anglo-Saxon church beside it was once part of a Saxon fortified settlement. Unlike most castles which fell into disuse and ruin, Dover castle was in use throughout World War II and had a role to play in the 1980s in the event of nuclear war.
