Memories of the Cremyll ferry in days gone by will be brought back to life at an event taking place on Saturday.

Entitled Stonehouse Views and Cremyll Quay, the event at St Paul's Church in Durnford Street will include archive footage of the ferry along with historical information, maps and old photographs.

A local historian will lead two walks exploring the waterfront and the Cremyll connection, plans of the proposed developments at Cremyll Quay will be on display and there will be information about what's on offer at Mount Edgcumbe Country Park.

The event is free and open from 10.30am until 4pm.

Councillor Chris Mavin said: "We know that the first record of a ferry between the two areas goes back to 1204. It should be a really interesting event."

A council spokeswoman added: "This event aims to highlight the fact there is more than just the ferry linking Stonehouse, Cremyll and Mount Edgcumbe."
