Getting to know our heritage and wildlife

Discover the Dour is being developed to help local people and visitors to explore and enjoy the River Dour and its surroundings. The importance of the river to the history of Dover is easily overlooked now it no longer powers the town's major industries, and few people realise the rareness or delicacy of the ecosystem of this rare chalk stream river. We hope to make it fun to find out about the river using this website.

Local people can help to look after the river and details of how to join in will be posted.
