Knott End - Fleetwood Ferry

The ferry from Knott End to Fleetwood provides a very useful link across the River Wyre, used by workers, locals, shoppers and people like me! The crossing takes just a few minutes, otherwise it is a very long way round by road.

The ferry arrives at a very blustery Knott End slipway. 
Loading for the return trip to Fleetwood. It proved to be quite a choppy crossing.

  1. Reminds me of the old New Holland to Hull paddle steamer ferry (before "The Bridge"). It often got stuck on sandbank if the tides were low.
