The event also featured a demonstration of the proposed rolling bridge, which will allow pedestrians to cross the dock as well as boats to pass through, depending on which way it is rolled.

Tom Randall-Page, who designed the hand-cranked bridge, brought a scale model to the festival to show visitors how the £200,000 project would work.
