Having lived in Dover all my life and always been interested in local history, a tribute site to Dover seemed a good idea. I have a large collection of old postcards and photographs of the town and many books on local history, which I have collected over the years.This site is by no means meant to be an exhaustive history of Dover but hopefully it will prove useful as a starting point for anyone wanting to explore the fascinating history of this ancient town.To people passing through I say: There is more than just the Port, so stop a while and look around. Your interest will be rewarded.To local people I say: Much of Dover's past has been destroyed by war or swept away in a frantic quest for modernisation, but much still remains. If you take a little time to look into Dover's past you will find that you live in a town with a rich and colourful history. While the present is important, as Dovorians we have a past to be proud of - and to live up to.ContactIf you have any comments about the site you can e-mail me.

If you click through and buy using any of the links it doesn’t cost you any more for what you buy but I get a small commission which helps to pay for the small running costs.
