Note there is little or no access to the left bank, Beetle & Wedge, side of the old ferry crossing. This is an old right of way and should not have been lost! The South Stoke slipway is on the East, right bank side.>
The ferry ceased activity in 1961/2.
In 2004 donations from villagers allowed the slipway on the South Stoke bank to be refurbished and this is now available to the public for the launching and recovery of small craft.
However parking is very limited and may be difficult.
