An aerial ropeway was built in 1930 to link Tilmanstone pit with Dover Harbour. This included tunnelling through the cliff at Dover to deliver the coal to a 5,000 ton bunker at the harbour. It wasn't used much after 1935, and was dismantled in 1954.

Travelling 'crane' - possibly part of a [fine] coal delivery system for shipping

Love the cable system in the background - for transporting coal?
