Dover Local Customs: 8 reviews and 7 photos
Did you know that the Roman Emperor Caligula (in 90 AD) commanded a Lighthouse to be built at Dover, England?
And thanks to him - today, it is the oldest Lighthouse still in existence in England and it can be found in the compounds of Dover Castle.
Here's another interesting fact (if you don't already know): Lighthouse lights have the power of the equivalent of 20 million candles... lit by high pressure xenon lamps!! (Whilst researching on Dover, I came upon this hot tip in my trusty old Encyclopedia).
