time you could, your father would, and your grandfather probably often
did, travel on the ferry to Starcross for a combined river/rail trip to
Torquay or even Plymouth. Many generations have used this facility to
get to the western side of the estuary, so avoiding a round trip of 20
miles via the lowest crossing point of the river at Exeter. For just

impossible to discover. I have endeavoured, from a multitude of sources
to trace the history of the ferry, its owners, managers and operators."
