Title: Before The Bridge

The River Severn Ferries have carved their place in history with all who used them. Millions used to flock to the tiny jetties at Aust and Beachley, in Gloucestershire, attempting to cut out the hundred or so extra miles they'd have to travel to get to and from Wales and the West Country. For the people who lived nearby many a famous passenger meant a glimpse and, sometimes, the afternoon off school as the stars passed through.

(film maker Tim Ryan from Beachley, Gloucestershire )
