Description

King Harry Ferry

The King Harry Ferry working as it does every day and in doing so running every 20 minutes between 07.20 and 21.30. Saving drivers a huge diversion of around 27 miles via Truro the King Harry Ferry saves 1.7 million kg of CO2 and 3/4 of a million litres of fuel transporting 300,000 cars across the River Fal every year. It was established in 1888 and has been updated a number of times and is one of five chain ferries working in Britain. All you folk who love the Lake District will know the one crossing from Bowness to Sawry. Just so you guys do not worry the the ferry in the shot is just departing ( you can see the vehicles facing away ) , I do not think I would have stood on this spot with the ferry coming in !!
