Station Name: DOVER PRINCE OF WALES PIER

[Source:Nick Catford]


1898 1:2,500 OS map shows the pier under construction. Although named 'Prince of Wales Pier' in 1893 it is just identified here as 'Pier'. The 'Granville clock tower' has not yet been moved and is seen here in line with the entrance to the pier. The ‘Esplanade’ Hotel is also blocking the route of the future railway line. The three bays either side are covered areas to provide protection from the weather for members of the public using the pier.
