Lake District - Roa Island
8 September 2001
Looking across to Piel Island from Roa Island. The latter is joined to the mainland by a
causeway constructed by the Furness Railway to give their line a deep-water port in 1846.
Unfortunately today the wind was too strong for the ferry to Piel Island to be operating.
However, that wind was good news for the windsurfers
