Ferry At Saltney - a Memory of Saltney Ferry.

In the 1950's when I was knee-high to a grasshopper...I remember having to cross the ferry in a little rowing boat so we could cross over to B's, or Bees (I think it was a farm), my Uncle Nev worked there. Anybody else remember this ferry?

I remember the ferry well and used it a few times. My grandparents lived in Ewart Street and my sister and I used to spend summer holidays with them. This was in the 50s and 60s. I came back a few years ago and was sad to see a footbridge over the Dee now. If I remember correctly you had to ring a bell for the ferryman to come and take you across.
