Not likely; National Trust membership sticker in the bottom corner of the Windscreen.

Agreed.

Prince of Wales Bridge, M4 (not the M48).

Have you ever watched the car reviews from "High Peak Autos"? He regards that as the sign of a well maintained vehicle.

Brucie bonus points for this. It's not a random boat, it has supposedly got some history behind it....

@Kansas City Milkman

^^^ If it where I think it is, the manner in which the boat has been painted is the historic bit, rather than the particular ferry boat in the picture?

Painted to resemble black and white ‘gunports’ after the Napoleonic wars, to make them look something they aren’t. A tradition that has been carried on each time that one of the boats has been replaced.

There is also a historic bit to the actual ferry crossing.

I have been on the beach, on both sides of the crossing. Though probably not for about 40-50 years. :)

:clap: Good work agent @nbg

Extra points for the context.

Correct on all counts! Although the ferry is good, sometimes it's nice to take a walk across the bridge instead
