Lake District ferry Mallard gets back to work

After a Five-week slipping, refit and MCA survey, the Westmorland and Furness Council-owned ferry Mallard returned to full service at the end of May.

After the decision to delay the purchase of a new all-electric vehicle ferry, the council contractors carried out extensive engineering works to extend the ferries life for a further five years.

This work included updates to the hydraulics and adjustments to the loading ramps to allow for higher winter lake levels. A full repaint of the hull and superstructure was also completed.

The ferry operates a seven-days-a-week service between Ferry Nab and Ferry House on the west side of Windermere and carries 12 vehicles plus foot passengers and cyclists.
