The Ferry at Sale Cruising Club

This little passenger operated ferry across the Bridgewater Canal continued to function for most of December, during the whole month of which the canal has to some extent been frozen.

These pictures were taken on 19 December, but by Christmas the ferry had been abandoned in favour of simply strolling across the ice.

The thaw has now put paid to that method of crossing, but some ice still lingers on.

So peaceful images of winter! This year we also experience a heavy one, which was not the case during the 10-15 years. It reminds me of my childhood.

Wish you all the best for this year!

it's funny seeing yourself in a picture on the Internet! That's me tying the ferry (or Pontoon as we call it) on the other side during the freeze last year.

Well spotted, Liam (and apologies for the delay in spotting your comment).
That seems a long time ago now, though the sky hasn't changed colour!
