Published to accompany our 2015 exhibition of the same name. A brief history of the Topsham Ferry and other means of crossing the Exe, including by bridge. Known crossings included a bridge at Exeter, perhaps in existence since Roman times, and a ferry from Exmouth to Starcross, dating from at least the 12th century. Between these points there were dangerous fording places until Countess Wear bridge was built.
