FERRY SERVICES

Greater Brislington Together have been talking with the Bristol Ferry company about the possibility of extending their routes to the Netham Lock

Bristol Ferry Co have talked with the Harbour Master and know they can run the route, so they now need to know that there is a demand for the service.

We’ve put together a short survey to give the Ferry company an idea of likely usage from St Annes, St George and Netham into and out of town.

Please fill out our survey https://greaterbrislington.org/get-involved/bristol-ferry-route-extension-to-netham-lock/
