Footpath 87 to Thorn Point

Bere Ferrers public footpath 87 to Thorn Point was, up until the inter-war years, busy with flowers and spring produce brought over on the ferry from Cargreen, and taken up to the station to be conveyed to London. The ferry ceased operating in the 1920s. Presumably, although recorded as a footpath, it was once a cartroad. The footpath is designated as the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail.
