There has been a ferry across Windermere for as long as people can remember, with the first documented permission of carriage of goods dating from the 13th century. This book tells of the trials and tribulations as the ferry developed over the years, from ferry rights, ferrymen, passengers and dispute over ferry prices. The author worked for a time for the Freshwater Biological Association, based then, and now, at the western landing of the ferry.
