For a small charge a traditional rowing boat - based on the Suffolk punt design - can ferry adults, children, dogs, bicycles, buggies and pushchairs across the river Blyth to and from the Walberswick and Southwold banks. The ferry operates on various dates within the popular high summer holiday weeks, as well as during the school holidays of Easter and half-terms, carrying up to 12 passengers at a time. This way of crossing the river is an alternative to walking inland to the Bailey Bridge footbridge - see The Walberswick Map.
