Festivals & Heritage

Saltburn Cliff Lift was built in 1884, the third such system built in Britain, and is the earliest surviving example. It worked by pumping water into the top carriage, which descended when heavy enough, hauling the second carriage up the cliff at the same time. An early feature of the early cars was the inclusion of stained-glass windows, but these were removed in 1955 when the car bodies were replaced. However when the new aluminium cars were introduced in 1979 (modelled on the original design), this attractive feature was reinstated.

Don’t miss the chance to enjoy one of the last 16 working Funicular Railways in the UK.
