Now something different. Cleddau King was built by Hancock's Shipbuilding Co,. in Pembroke Dock in 1962 (to accompany her older sister Cleddau Queen) on the crossing of the River Cleddau between Hobb's Point and Neyland in South Wales. In the background you can see the beginnings of the Haven Bridge which was to replace the ferries in 1970, but it collapsed during construction and the ferries continued until the bridge was finally completed in 1975. Cleddau King was then transferred to Strangford Loch in Northern Ireland, renamed Porta Ferry and opened her new service on 13:11:1975. She continued in service until replaced in 2002 by Portaferry II, built by Gdańska Stocznia Remontowa and completed by McTay Marine in Bromborough.
