Dover

Dover is a small, incorporated fishing and lumbering village located in a small cove at the head of Freshwater Bay, Bonavista Bay, in the Canadian Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Settled in the early 1890's it was originally know as Shoal Bay, presumably from its many shallow covers and inlets in the area. Containing many densely forested islands, Bonavista Bay is virtually landlocked. With temperatures sometimes reaching -1°C, it attracts the occasional iceberg. However, due to the dense forestry, the region inside the bay can sometimes be warm enough for lobster cultivation.

Visitor attractions near Dover include the geological feature called the 'Dover Fault', a major break in the Earth's crust. It is the dividing line for Gondwana and Laurentia that was formed by the Iapetus Ocean.

Lumber, and fishing have been the traditional industries. Lumber and manufacturing make up a significant part of the economy today.
