Dover Priory


3rd November 2004


To the west of the platforms are a trio of sidings which are situated on the level relative to the running lines, the latter of which fall at a 1 in 105 gradient. This was the former site of the LC&DR's carriage and engine shed, and then, after 1928, the Southern Railway's goods yard. The tired-looking pitched roof structure on the right is the SR's original goods shed. © David Glasspool

A cliff-top view of the site from 21st June 2007 illustrates well the existing layout. The pitched-roof building on the far left is the former goods shed, which has been fenced off from the rest of the expanse and the area immediately surrounding it cleared.

Viewed from Folkestone Road, the last remnants of Dover Priory’s goods shed are being removed by Dover Demolition Ltd, who are currently clearing the site pending construction of a new car park. © David Morgan
