A view of East Ferry from Great Island
The road to this location deteriorates rapidly towards the end and then it abruptly stops here at the estuary! The name of the location on the opposite side of the estuary gives away the nature of this location - at one time there was a ferry that sailed from this location to the jetty on the opposite bank. Apparently to get the attention of the ferryman (in the pub opposite) you had to shout until he heard you and he would then row out to collect you!
