Dartmouth Car Ferry

Darmouth Car Ferry.

I love ferries across rivers or channels. As a child it was great fun to be rowed across Shoreham Harbour. The oars would dip silently into the water as the ‘old man’ would pull us across the water in the old ‘clinker’ built boat.

The Dartmouth ferry in Devon crosses the River Dart and is in a different league, but it still has that ‘ancient’ feel. There is always the childhood fear that the chain might break.

Long may the clanking chains and bumpy ride continue.
