Windermere ferry out of action for maintenance work

THE Windermere ferry is out of action from today until Saturday May 24 to allow maintenance work to take place.

The vessel, named Mallard, is receiving its five-yearly inspection and is undergoing a full out-of-the-water check.

Cumbria County Council is also investing £300,000 into a refit of the boat by updating its hydraulic system.

Windermere Lake Cruises is providing an alternative service with limited space for two bicycles at a time during the maintenance work.

The service will operate between Ferry House jetty and Pier 3 in Bowness Bay, subject to weather and safety considerations. The replacement service will operate throughout the day between 8am and 5.40pm.
