River Wansbeck Chain Ferry

Hello everyone!
Does anyone have any information about the old ferry that used to run across the River Wansbeck in Northumberland near the mouth of that river?
Sometimes known as Wheatley's Ferry it ran to the east of the present-day A189 spine-road bridge crossing and linked Cambois with North Seaton and Ashington. Dates, photographs, and any other information would be appreciated. (This would be a very small ferry).
