Ferry boat, Coalport

« Previous

Women came to work at the China Works not just from the village of Coalport itself, but from the surrounding towns and villages of Barrow, Benthall, Broseley, Coalbrookdale, Ironbridge, Jackfield and Madeley. Many of the women employed there lived on the opposite bank of the River Severn and had to cross the river on the ferry to get to work.
