This new and expanded edition of Harwich Ferries traces the development of Harwich and, more especially, Parkeston Quay up until it became the most versatile of all Britain’s ferry ports. At no other port in the country, and achieved whilst under the continuous ownership of the railways, could there be seen such a wide variety of passenger ferries, freight and container ships, train ferries and car boats in such close proximity. Written by former Sealink employee Stephen Brown, Harwich Ferries contains a wealth of unpublished material including official accounts and photographs. It also includes an extensive fleet list of over 350 ships which compliments this rich and fascinating history.
