Hampton Loade Ferry
Hampton Loade Ferry
A pedestrian cable ferry linking the villages of Hampton Loade and Hampton across the River Severn. This crossing has been in use for about 400 years, and the current ferry was built in 2004. It measures 20 feet by 9 feet, and carries up to 12 passengers.
River Severn

The River Severn is the longest river in the United Kingdom, at about 220 miles. It rises at an altitude of 610 metres on Plynlimon, in the Cambrian Mountains of mid Wales. It then flows through Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, with the county towns of Shrewsbury, Worcester, and Gloucester on its banks.
The river is usually considered to become the Severn Estuary after the Second Severn Crossing between Severn Beach, South Gloucestershire and Sudbrook, Monmouthshire. The river then discharges into the Bristol Channel.
