Chains

By Fefe
So pleased you all liked my Darling Starling yesterday, thank you all so much!

Here is one where you can see a bit more of Dorset, this is the chain ferry that runs from Sandbanks to Studland across Poole Harbour.
Really handy bit of transport, its miles to drive around.

Sorry my exif is missing again, when LR classic did an update it removed the settings again🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄. I've added what I know from memory...

Brings back memories of the chain ferries at Cowes and the one that used to run between Woolston and the town centre side of the river Itchen in Southampton.

A beautiful photo, Diane. I have never seen a chain ferry. The ferry has no engine or propulsion system?

So sorry I cant answer that fully Peter, but the chains run across from one side to the other and as the ferry gets close to the shore the chains pull taught. I do not think there is any engine.
