Discover White Cliffs of Dover

Vera Lynn's 1942 recording, written to lift the morale of the Allied forces during the Second World War, was inspired by this part of the English coastline, England's defacto border with continental Europe. Part of the North Downs formation, the White Cliffs of Dover (named as such because of their chalk and flint constitution) are 350 feet at their highest point.

Stretching from the Kentish town of Dover, they have for decades been a strong national symbol, being the first and last sight of England for travellers making the Channel crossing.
