Dover District Cycle Forum Greenway & Times Campaigns
The consultation for phase 2 of the River Dour Greenway cycle route between Ladywell and the seafront in Dover has just opened. A lot of thought has gone into how to skirt Pencester Gardens, approach and cross the Market Square, nip through the alley past the Museum, and use the precinct and the underpass to reach the far side of the A20 and the seafront.
