Forgotten Spaces 2011 shortlisted: Pilgrim Ferry by What If: Projects Ltd

[Havering] Ferry connection to close the missing link of the London Loop

The proposed ferry connection between Erith and Rainham is closing the missing link of the London Loop. Two gleaming white landmarks on the north and south side of the Thames Estuary render the new ferry stops visible from the distance and provide stunning views over this coastal landscape.

Gleaming landmarks provide stunning views over the coastal landscape

Travelling along the route of the historic Pilgrim Ferry that connected the north and south side of the river at Erith Reach until 1854 the proposed foot and cycle passenger ferry links the first and the last section of the London Loop with proposed landings in Rainham Marshes and at Erith Riverside Gardens.

The new river link could form a possible extension to the existing river transport network in Central London facilitating an exciting day out to the Thames Estuary.
