Hewitts Bakery,Dour St. Dover
« Reply #1 on: July 08, 2013, 10:26:37 »
Does anyone remember the old Hewitts bakery site at Dour Street Dover? You'd have to be 60+ years old i should think. As I remember it in the 1950s, it was a semi-derelict building thanks to the Fuhrer's guns over in France. I have this memory of my brothers renting a usable room in the building to practise playing their guitars. There may have been an upper floor door opening out onto a drop where a shell had hit the building.
Near to the Crafford Street end of Dour Street there is now a large tree on the site and it's remembered by Hewitt Road running off Dour St. here. Just across the street was the Townsend Car Ferries ships store and offices where i worked for several years. I can't remember what these were used for before Townsends took them over.
