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

Even earlier, it was the club house for the officers' golf course in the field behind it as my old 'Dover and the Kent Coast' (Ward Lock) town map shows. I remember the children outside the school at playtime.The field behind looked oddly uneven to me until I found out what it used to be.That field is now used as an overflow car park for the Castle with the East Wing Fort higher up.

The Sea Cadets building was once a school. There are a pair of WW2 air-raid shelters that served it on the opposite side of the road, which are now fenced off within the grounds of Dover Castle but they can still be seen from the path.
