Jigsaw Puzzle – Windermere Ferry, c.1910

The Windermere Ferry is a convenient way to cross the lake, for example to go from Bowness to see Hill Top, the former home of children’s writer Beatrix Potter. Here is the ferry in 2012 carrying its load of motor cars.

Windermere Car Ferry, October 2012

The ferrying of vehicles across Windermere is, however, a much older activity. Back in the early part of the 20th century (and indeed, before) ferries carried horse-drawn vehicles across. One popular tour from Windermere was via the ferry to the other side of the lake and then by road or by train to Furness Abbey.

On this Lake District jigsaw puzzle is a picture, from the days of black and white photography, of a Windermere ferry boat carrying two horse drawn tourist carriages. (25/11/2013 – Sorry, this jigsaw puzzle is currently out of stock)
