There was an old ferryman operating a wooden rowboat through the 50s when I was a child. My parents used to walk me down to this spot to take the short ride across and also back later. On the factory side there was a long, narrow, alleyway leading to the road. The ferryman lived down there under what appeared to be a half-collapsed thick concrete bunker. I recall a spring of fresh water issuing from a rock next to it.

That's a fascinating collection of historical facts. Thanks for posting! I grew up on Newbridge Road so it's good to know a bit more about my roots :-)

I lived at Wootton Crescent when I was a child. It can be seen clearly on the photo. In fact I can see our house which mum still lives in. If you look at the chimney on the right, you can make out Wootton Road going up with the circle on the left. That was the water plant and it had a bridge across it which rotated all the time. We could see it from our front room window.
