Description

The Ferry Boat Inn, Washingborough, Lincolnshire

The Ferry Boat Inn is a 16th Century listed building with low-beamed ceilings typical of the period. An ale house is known to have been on the site in 1547 & had the ferry rights to across the river. Originally it was for horse and passengers, later for passengers only. The River Witham at the time was a quarter of a mile across, now it is about 30 yards from bank to bank which may well account for the fact that the pub is a few hundred yards from the River Witham which flows easterly just to the north of the village.
