Dover Priory

The main entrance is located to the east of the platforms and dates from the Southern Railway's rebuilding of the station in 1932. Priory station received numerous bomb hits during World War II air raids, thus this building is a lucky survivor. © David Glasspool

The signal box still exists at the northern end of the station, complete with Network SouthEast name board and metal grills protecting the windows, but it became non-operational in 1998. The platform extension is a result of the Kent Coast Electrification scheme of June 1959, although the short section nearest the tunnel was completed after the decommissioning of sidings on the "down" side in April 1969. The three-aspect colour light is supported on a former semaphore signal bracket. © David Glasspool
