Maison Dieu - Very impressive, originally
founded in 1203 by Hubert de Burgh Constable of Dover
Castle and Earl of Kent and built by Dover Priory as
a hospice for pilgrims, destitute soldiers and old people.
Consecrated in 1227 by Henry II, first of a long line
of visiting monarchs including Edward II, Edward III,
Richard II, Henry V and Henry VI. Taken from the monks
during the reformation, given to the navy, it was used
as a victualling store supplying the British fleet for
300 years from the Spanish Armarda to the Battle of
Trafalgar. Contains Armour, fine paintings and stained
glass windows depicting historic events in Dover.
