why is dover which is closer to coastal ports than is london, not the capital of english trade??
is it because of its proximity to the english channel, dovers weather is motr inclement than london's making it difficult fo ships to land their??
Dover has no natural harbor for large ships. Have you ever seen the River Dour?
Without a natural harbor, ships are very unsafe in storms. Up the River Thames, however, sea storms are not a worry.
Dover is a pretty site, but pretty sites do not draw tradesmen.
