20 years ago today nearly 3,000 people, including 67 UK nationals lost their lives in the appalling 9/11 attack which shook America & the free world. We will never forget those who died. We pay tribute to emergency workers & all those that responded to this cowardly atrocity.

The Higher Ferry is now closed to vehicular traffic from Kingswear entering Dartmouth until 13:00pm (approximately) This is due to the tour of GB cycle race.
