Welcome To The King Harry Ferry
I love the trip across to The Roseland on the King Harry floating bridge, some know it as a chain ferry. The views are wonderful and there is plenty of wildlife on both banks and flying above. This is the ferry stop on the Feock side of the River Fal.
"In 1887, Colonel Arthur Tremayne of Carclew, gathered together some friends with the idea of forming a company to run a steam-driven ferry bridge across the Fal River in place of the old barge-like man-propelled ferry which was then being used.
On April 18, 1888, the King Harry Steam Ferry Company was formed, to acquire the lease and charter for the operation of a steam ferry bridge across the Fal River at King Harry Passage, together with the land and property.
There has been a floating bridge operating over the upper reaches of the Fal since 1889 and a rowing ferry for more than 500 years. The new ferry is the 7th to operate on the service since 1888."
