Artist's Description

The Ferry Shed

Number of views as of 24th March 2015 = 600.

The Ferry Shed, on the small island of Easdale provides shelter for passengers awaiting the ferry from Ellenabeich on Seil. It is colourfully adorned with “boat jumble”, presumably washed up on the shore.

Easdale was the centre of a slate-mining community, which between the 1550s and 1911, extracted thousands of tons of slate from below sea level, just so we could all have a roof over our heads!

By 1961 the population had fallen to a handful, but has now recovered to around 60.

Date: 21st August 2008.
