SU6085 : The Ferry Is Back – for a day

by

In days gone by there used to be a ferry over the Thames between Little Stoke and Cholsey.
It hasn’t run for ages, but in September 2021 for one afternoon a boat was taking passengers over the river in connection with a sponsored walk for local charities.
One of the charities was the boat itself, which is specially adapted with a landing craft style front to get chair-bound passengers on board for trips on the river.
This is looking from the Little Stoke side over to Cholsey, where the road you can see is still called Ferry Lane.
