The contraption that takes passengers to Burgh Island at high tide
The contraption that takes passengers to Burgh Island at high tide
This photo shows it at low tide, so that the undercarriage and wheels can be seen. Apparently it can operate in up to 3m of water. This photo was taken in 1992, but it would seem from the other photo to be still in operation.
