These are views of the Saltburn Cliff Lift. The lift is powered by water and the current installation was commissioned in approximately 1884. The carriage at the top of the 120ft. 71degree incline has a tank which is filled with water until its weight overcomes that of the lower carriage. Gravity then takes the top carriage to the bottom and the lower to the top as they are interconnected by steel cables. There are additional controls managed by a brake man in the small cabin at the top.

Image #2 is a view from the ascending carriage of its neighbouring descending carriage.

#3 is one of the water filling system at the top (the water from the 1000 gallon tank is emptied at the bottom and pumped back to the top).

#4 shows the carriage leaving the top and #5 both carriages in transit.

#6 is a view inside the brake man's cabin.

Amazing the faith we put in engineers.

A grand set, Mike, reminds me of a similar lift between Lynton and Lynmouth in Devon. Carol
