Clickable thumbnails of all Dover Harbour- and Western Heights-related photos from the main Panoramio Images of Dover website are available on this blog at Port of Dover Page and Western Heights Page (also linked to at the top below the blog title).

The main site Panoramio photos are each accompanied by a Google Earth satellite map. However, the images are smaller than those on the Images of Dover Blog and the captions are less well formatted.
