Welcome from St Annes.
I hope you enjoy the site.

I last went on the Knott End ferry many years ago and I had the most peculiar capuccino in my life in the cafe on the Knott End side. The cream on top came out of an aerosol can by the look of it! YukKKK!

Still I hope nothing to do with you. :)

Hi,no that would have had nothing to do with me ,but the cafe and the ferry did have a conection with opperator before me,Wont say much more as we didnt get on with them .I also ran the slipway at knottend for launching fees my last run on the ferry was a couple of years ago helping the present opperator with my own boat princess anne and also skippering there own to cover days off.The boat i used was built in 1933 ,so wooden boats do last.
