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

Dover Electricity Works

Established to light Dover's streets, in 1896 The Electricity Works were enlarged to power the tram system in Dover.
As electric points and lights became more commonplace, the existing plant was unable to cope and Dover was placed on the National Grid.
The Works was demolished, and are now the site of the Police Station in Ladywell.
