Christchurch Harbour

Rivers and Town 

One of the few working Fishing Boats, that were once so plentiful before the decline of fish stocks in the area. The boat looks so weather beaten and bedraggled against its pleasant background.This is one of my favorite Fishing spots,where as a boy I caught 23 fish in less than 2 hours. It is also where I once caught a giant 'Conger Eel', much to my horror and amazement at the time. A friend helped me carry it home


One of the few covered ferry boats that were introduced into the area around 1935 or so I'm informed. A ride on one of these boats between Tuckton Bridge and Mudeford Sandbanks is an absolute must, and don't forget the camera you will need it as words alone cannot describe the beauty that you may see on a clear summers day.


A Cruiser passes the modern day 'Ferry Boat' as it heads out to sea via the 'Mudeford Run' which is in the picture below and gateway to the open sea.
