St. Mary in Castro, Dover

Perched on top of the white cliffs of Dover with a 360 degree panorama of the English Channel and surrounding countryside lies St. Mary in Castro. The church sits within the English Heritage site of Dover Castle and from its Saxon beginnings has served the army garrison within the castle and the surrounding area for many centuries. The age of the church is uncertain but the current building dates from 800 to 1000AD. However, it is likely that an earlier Roman building sat on the site – Roman building materials were incorporated into the walls and arches of the church by the Saxons.
