Hampton Ferry
The Hampton Ferry is a pedestrian chain ferry linking Eveshammarker and the district of Hamptonmarker across the River Avon in the Englishmarker county of Worcestershire. The route dates back to the 13th century, when it was established by monks.

The ferry is manually operated by pulling on a cable that is suspended across the river. When the ferry is docked at either bank the cable is allowed to sink to the river bottom, so as not to interfere with navigation.

Hampton Ferry should not be mistaken for Hampton Loade Ferrymarker across the River Severn in Shropshiremarker.
