Hampton Loade Ferry was a pedestrian cable ferry linking the villages of Hampton Loade and Hampton across the River Severn.
The crossing had been in use for around 400 years, it permanently closed in 2016. The ferry now lies in a state of disrepair half submerged in the river Severn.
SO7486 : Hampton Loade Ferry
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.
