Ferry Slipway at Knott End
Ferry Slipway at Knott End
The Wyre Rose Ferry takes on passengers at its Knott End slipway ready for the return journey to its berth at Queen’s Terrace, which is to the right of the RNLI lifeboat station on The Esplanade, across the River Wyre at Fleetwood.

The Fleetwood to Knott End ferry service has been in operation since 1841, linking the town of Fleetwood with the rural communities of Knott End, Pilling and Preesall in the area known locally as “Over Wyre”. The service is something of a novelty for tourists but is also an important form of transport between communities for local people. The ferry journey across the River Wyre takes less than five minutes but the alternative 13˝ mile road journey by car, across the Shard Bridge and through the country lanes of Over Wyre takes upwards of 25 minutes if traffic is light (much longer at busy times).
