Isle of Wight Nostalgia - Other Transport - 1


My first visit to the Island with a camera - this early hovercraft (SRN6 I think) was photographed in 1969.

This is the Waverley photographed in 1991 off Ventnor about 5pm with the Brittany Ferry in the background. A book has just been published to celebrate her sister ship Balmoral's 50th birthday. All profits go to keep the Balmoral & Waverley running. It is available from Waverley Excursions, Anderston Quay, Glasgow, G3 8HA. at 12.95 + 3.00 p&p. Thanks to Neil Bullock for this information..


Another view of the Waverley.

Chair lift

Miles from the nearest ski slopes, this chair lift is an unusual way to travel down the cliff!
