The central Keep, or Great Tower, and ex-Palace Tower, of Dover Castle is 83 feet (25.3m) high and just under 100 feet (30m) square with walls up to 21 feet (6.5m) thick. The architect was 'Maurice the Engineer' (or Mason) and it was built between 1180-1185 during the reign of Henry II.



Around the Keep are the towers and massive walls of the Inner Bailey (or Inner Curtain Wall)



In turn, the Inner Curtain Wall is contained within the Outer Curtain Wall that has two main entrances at Canons Gateway and Constable's Gateway.



Behind and just to the left of the Keep are the AD 46 East Roman Pharos (a lighthouse or watchtower) and adjacent church of St Mary-in-Castro, commonly termed Saxon but also attributed to the second-century King Lucius of Britain who ruled under the Romans. The West Roman Pharos is known as the Bredenstone.



Castle, Church, and Pharos are Dover Listed Buildings and Dover English Heritage sites.

Not a very big place but I do remember visiting this place several times when I was a child with my grandparents, who lived in Appleby at the time. It still looks like this today surrounded by trees and gardens next the Eden River. A beautiful spot.

Built in the 1180's by hamelin plantagenet. One of the finest examples of a norman keep. I remember this when the old steps were there and no roof on it as it is today.

The keep was built in the early 12th century for King Henry I, William the Conqueror’s son.
