    After a quick text to Wevsky one bright sunny Saturday morning Dover bound we went, Was a really laid back easy going visit the place is so quiet its eery !
    History, a bit scarce to say the least but heres what little I could find;
    During a new fear of invasion from Napoleon III two new dry moats where added to the existing citadel defences. The northern and the southern moat both had their own casemates built. Between these there was also a defensive caponier built, but sadly this was filled in during the 1960's by the Dover Corporation and they gradually destroyed many parts of the Western Heights.

    The northern casemates are a lot larger than the southern casemates, with six separate rooms whereas the southern casemates had eight.

    So here goes with a few of my Pics taken on the Day, Difficult choosing them as this place is expansive to say the least and I took a fair few :D
