Hazelford Ferry on the River Trent

Interesting item in the Newark Advertiser on Hazelford Ferry, near Bleasby. The site was an ancient ferry crossing (the only one between Nottingham and Newark for several hundred years) but has been neglected in recent years.

Parish councillors and residents of Bleasby and Gibsmere have recently cleared the area and planted a wildflower meadow to create a place for people to sit and enjoy the river.
