SJ7395 : Hulme's Bridge Ferry

taken 14 years ago, near to Barton Moss, Salford, Great Britain

Hulme's Bridge Ferry.
Hulme's Bridge Ferry.
This ferry is on the Manchester Ship Canal and connects Irlam, on the north bank, with Flixton to the south. It is still operational and is a free ferry. It replaced a bridge crossing the River Irwell, which was canalised during the construction of the canal in the 1890s. I believe it still operates because an Act of Parliament requires it.
