One of the last remaining ferries on the Norfolk Broads has been put up for sale.

Dave Scragg took over the historic ferry at Horning in 2017.

The crossing at Horning has been running in various forms for centuries, taking people across the River Bure between the village and Woodbastwick Staithe.

Mr Scragg took the 1970s-80s converted lifeboat and transformed it into a full taxi service which he ran on a non-profit basis with a team of volunteers, including his wife Linda.

He was forced to cease trading in January this year after several volunteers dropped out and decided to put the boat up for sale in March.

It was listed on Facebook Marketplace last weekend with an asking price of £2,750.

"This is your chance to own a piece of history," Mr Scragg said.

He added it could either be used as a family day boat, a fishing boat or a work boat but said he would prefer it to be kept as a ferry to preserve its part in local history.

"This was the last foot ferry in Norfolk, but it doesn't have to be the end," he said. "The ferry could live on.

"With the right team of people there is so much more that could be done and it ticks so many green boxes regarding alternative ways of getting around.

"But it needs committed people. I've had too many dreamers try and get involved before and they just let me down.

"If you're serious about running a ferry service - believe me, it is a challenge - buy the boat first and I'll give you all the help I can, but I haven't got the time to help run it."
