Ailsa’s Travel Theme

Transportation is Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week, click the link to join in.

The current Higher Ferry from Dartmouth has been operating since 2009, but it has a history reaching back to the 14th century. In the 1920’s it became  a car ferry and now operates for 16 hours each day, and apart from the queue it takes 5 minutes, saving a 26 mile drive that takes 50 minutes. A beautiful leisure drive but tedious if it separates home from work etc, connecting the South Hams with Torbay on the A379.

This was a very grey day back in June, but it’s a nice little jaunt in the sunshine!
