North Cliff, Dover
Artist: Bulman, I
The white chalk cliffs of Dover are the point of England nearest to France. In her posthumous travelogue, 'Through England on a Side Saddle' (1888), Celia Fiennes notes: "I saw the cliffs and hills plaine, but some dayes towards the evening you may see the towers and buildings of Calais." As shown in this picture, the cliffs had fortifications built into them for defence.
