St James the Apostle Church was destroyed during World War II. Now a war memorial and known as Dover's "Tidy Ruin". The White Horse public house is said to date from the 14th Century. The pub is currently run by Jeanette Harper and is a popular venue for cross-channel swimmers, many of who have signed their names on the walls and ceiling.

Rare Panorama of the Napoleonic Canons Gate Caponier, Western Outer Curtain Wall, Dover Castle, Kent, UK. Also shows part of the mysterious Tudor Bulwark. A caponier (caponnier) is a type of fortification that projects into the ditch (moat) of a fortress, traverses it completely to a detached outwork , or forms a blockhouse set in the "corners" of a moat-system like those surrounding the Drop Redoudt and North Centre Bastion on Dover's Western Heights. Writing about Dover Castle in the seventh edition of a book first published in 1829, William Batcheller said: "The New Entrance was constructed to the north-west of Canon-gate, in 1797, and has a drawbridge, a caponniere under it, a tete-du-pont, and other defences." The "New Entrance" is today's Canons Gate (plural) while "Canon-gate" (singular) means the now-vanished Monk's Gate. English Heritage and Listed Building. History.
