The Old Chain Bridge

To get across the River Medina from East Cowes to West Cowes you have to cross by a floating bridge that is pulled across by chains. It is an amazing experience travelling on such a primitive contraption in the 21st century. Without the bridge vehicles would have to drive right down to Newport to cross the river. The bridge also takes foot passengers who travel free.
