Torpoint Ferry

Torpoint Ferry

The Torpoint Ferries cross the River Tamar Torpoint in Cornwall, and the city of Plymouth in Devon. The crossing has a long and history, and there has been a formal ferry service at Torpoint since 1791. Originally serviced by rowing boats and then steam boats. However, the timetable was erratic due to tides and winds. The first Torpoint chain ferry or 'floating bridge' came into service in 1831, using a self-propelled vessel using a pair of vertical chain wheels in the middle of the vessel to pull on fixed chains connected between the river banks. There are currently three in operation. It costs nothing to cross from Plymouth to Torpoint. However, at the time of writing it costs £1.50 to cross from Torpoint back into Plymouth.
