HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

A rare look below the decks of the Lady Denman Ferry

Built in 1911 by shipbuilder Joseph Dent the Lady Denman now rests in a world class museum close to where she was built on the banks of Currambene Creek Huskisson.
The video gives you a rare look below the decks of the Lady Denman Ferry.  Constructed from locally felled timber one can only marvel at the skill and craftmanship of the builder and his crew.

The work by dedicated volunteers over many years to secure the Lady from deterioation can be seen amoungst the broken pipes, and rusting valves, she has seen better days.

The work continues.
