Dover Town Council proudly unveils the Dover Remembrance Art Trail commemorating and honouring the armed forces and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
The remembrance art trail consists of five pieces and features three new exhibits by British artist Mark Humphrey commemorating the end of World War One, two named Point of Everyman’s Land and one Every One Remembered.
The three pieces have been brought to Dover with the support of former Deputy Constable of Dover Castle Brigadier M. T. G. Bazeley.
The trail starts from Dover’s seafront at Granville Gardens, linking Dover town centre at Market Square and following onto Pencester Gardens. The three art pieces also connect with the Wall of Remembrance created by local artist Izzy Fraser and commissioned by the previous Right Worshipful the Town Mayor of Dover Cllr Neil Rix located at Dover’s War Memorial outside Maison Dieu House.
