Exmouth to Starcross
An Ancient Ferry
by W. H. (Harry) Pascoe

An Ancient Ferry
A Story of Almost 1200 Years
W. H. (Harry) Pascoe

"At one 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 how many generations the Exmouth to Starcross Ferry has operated it is impossible to discover. I have endeavoured, from a multitude of sources to trace the history of the ferry, its owners, managers and operators."
