Windermere Ferry will be closed tomorrow morning from 9am for urgent repairs to the cable drive system, which pulls the ferry across the lake.

The ferry is being closed at 9am to allow commuters to catch earlier ferries. The first ferry leaves Bowness at 6.50am, with further crossings approximately every 30 minutes.

Cumbria County Council apologises for any inconvenience and asks people to plan their journeys accordingly. It is hoped the ferry will re-open later in the day subject to completion of the repairs. Updates will follow.
