Cremyll ferry terminus improvements
The Cremyll Ferry, believed to have been operating continuously since 1204, runs from Stonehouse to Cremyll and is often referred to as the historic gateway to South East Cornwall. The current ferry terminus at Cremyll was constructed in the nineteenth century, with the main building using some reclaimed materials from Mount Edgcumbe House. This is sometimes referred to as the Earl's Waiting Room, after the Earl of Mount Edgcumbe. The later turnstile building was built in the 1930s. During World War II, the American troops stationed nearby used Cremyll Quay to load their tanks onto landing craft for the D-Day landings and laid a block path across the surface which is still there today.
Cremyll Quay is owned by Plymouth City and Cornwall Councils and managed on their behalf by the Mount Edgcumbe Joint Committee. The Quay and buildings have recently benefited from a refurbishment thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Urban Bus Challenge and the two councils. The Earl’s Waiting Room, turnstile building and bus shelter have been renovated and the Quay has been tidied and de-cluttered, creating a more welcoming and open environment. Historical information about Cremyll and the Ferry is displayed in the bus shelter and also at Admirals Hard in Stonehouse.
