In 1732 a new River Dee Act was passed, vesting all the lands of the estuary from Chester to the sea and the levying of tolls on shipping tonnage, Kinderley was engaged to maintain a depth of sixteen feet of water in the new artificial channel from the sea to Chester on a moderate spring tide. The lay-out of the new channel took a sharp bend from the old river course at Brewer's Hall, Chester to Saltney, followed by a further slight bend and thence in a straight line to Connah's Quay, in all, a distance of nearly eight miles skirting the Flintshire shore. Through the marsh, a trench, eighty feet wide by eight feet deep was excavated and the spoil material was thrown up to form the right or north main bank of the channel. The Act provided for the maintenance of two ferries-the Upper Ferry at Saltney and the lower Ferry (now Queen's Ferry) which was to be supplied with boats at the expense of the Company at all states of the tide. The Lower Ferry was adapted for the transport of horses. The capital of this scheme was £ 62,000. No dividend was paid until 1770. Modern cloth covers....... £100.00
