News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Interesting history, and the site of another modern bandstand!

Pencester Gardens, Dover

Whilst looking at surviving bandstands, I noticed that Pencester Gardens in Dover was a timber yard from the late 19th century until sometime between 1907 and 1937. Sometime in this latter period it was turned into a park. Was the park created for any particular reason (commemoration of an event or a memorial perhaps?)
