Photographer's Note

The Black Tor Ferry provides a scenic ride across the River Camel between Padstow and Rock.
It runs approximately every 20 minutes, taking around 5-10 minutes as opposed to a 30 minute car journey.
The fare- £3 return for an adult.

There has been a ferry at Black Tor Passage since 1337!

The route of the 630 mile long South West Coast Path utilises the ferry.

Rock is a village on the north eastern bank of the River Camel. Said to have got its' unusual name from the local quarry that once provided ballast for ships sailing from Padstow harbour.

To reach the ferry, you have to walk a footpath out of Padstow centre, then descend some steps to the beach, awaiting the ferry to arrive.

A couple of extra shots in the workshop.
Thanks for looking
