King Harry Ferry
The King Harry Ferry Bridge is chain vehicle ferry crossing the River Fal. The alternative is a 26 mile detour by road. The current ferry boat was built in 2006 and can carry up to 34 cars. Voted by the Independent newspaper to be included in their list of the worlds ten most scenic ferry crossings.
It is generally agreed that a ferry crossing has operated in this location for hundreds of year. The name of the ferry probably originates from the remains of a small Chapel named as King Henry’s chapel on the Roseland side of the crossing.[ready_google_map id=’348′] © Photograph of King Harry Ferry with kind permission of Phil Flckr
