Work has started to refurbish one of the region's most historic ferry links between Dartmouth and Kingswear. The lower ferry slipways on both sides of the river are being extended and resurfaced at a cost of more than a million pounds.
It is hoped the link, which dates back to the 1700s, will reopen by Easter. However, although the lower ferry will be out of service, the new high capacity higher ferry is running as normal for those wishing to cross the River Dart. Our correspondent Jonathan Gibson reports.
