The Norfolk Towers at the northern end of Dover Castle viewed from a field where French soldiers stood during the Great Siege of 1216, now adjacent to the hidden East Wing of the Victorian Fort Burgoyne. Zoom shot of 400 yards. The main entrance to Dover Castle prior to 1216 was the North Entrance, or Northgate. During the siege, engineers of the Dauphin (Prince Louis, later Louis VIII of France) so damaged the eastern gate tower of the North Entrance by mining that Hubert de Burgh (Constable of Dover Castle under King John, then Henry III) subsequently sealed the gateway. Norfolk Towers, St John's Tower, and Spur built in its place. St John's Tower connected to castle interior by an underground passage/tunnel. Listed Building and English Heritage site. History photo.

An 1869 Victorian drawing of Constable's Gate of Dover Castle, Kent, UK. Constable's Tower was built by John de Fiennes under William the Conqueror and for this reason was once known as Fiennes' Tower. Rebuilt after 1216 Siege of Dover by Hubert de Burgh under Henry III. This illustration, possibly by S or G Winebridge (indistinct lettering), was printed by W. W. Sprague and Co. Ltd. of London. Constable's Gateway was modernized in 1882 and is now the living quarters of the Deputy Constable of Dover Castle. 1899 source: "For a long time the porter's lodge contained a sword, an old key, and a horn, which were described as belonging to the days of Julius Caesar." Dover's Norman Castle is an English Heritage site, Grade I Listed Building, and Scheduled Ancient Monument.

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.
