wick ferry

Wick Ferry runs across the River Stour between Wick village and Christchurch.

Some historians believe that the first ferry rights were granted before the Christchurch Priory was built, which would make the service nearly 1000 years old, but nobody disputes that the service is 200-250 years old.

The Ferry runs every day (weather and tide permitting) from Easter until the end of October, from 10am until 5pm.

If the flag is flying, the ferry is running.
