THE FERRY BOAT CABIN AT COXGREEN

"The Cabin is no longer with us in its entirety and is now a shrub / flower container.
I was once told that passengers paid their Ferry fare through the window
beside the green metal gate but I can't confirm if this is true.

WOODEN PLAQUE
"This Plaque depicts John Frost rowing his Barmston Ferry Boat across the River Wear.
In 2019, it still sits on the gateway to the property."
