THE WOOLWICH FERRY
This free car and passenger ferry does five trips an hour across the River Thames. After Tower Bridge there are no bridges until you get to the Dartford Crossing some 20 miles away, so this crossing is always busy. The cars frequently wait up to an hour just to get on the boat. For passengers it’s great, you get straight on and it has a kind of holiday feel to it.
I’m starting a larger project on this area as a whole, I used to live in Woolwich Arsenal and was always really interested in the history of this part of the Thames and how it is changing.
