North Foreland is a headland on the easterly most point of Kent, in southeast England.  The lighthouse at North Foreland was the last to be manned in the UK, being automated only in 1998.

The Strait of Dover, or Pas de Calais, is the narrowest point in the English Channel, between South Foreland and Cap Griz Nez, a distance of 21 miles.
