About

The Spa Cliff Lift opened on July 6th 1875 and was the first funicular railway in Great Britain.The lift was originally powered by sea-water using a counterweight system. Two gas engines (replaced by steam pumps in 1879) were installed to pump the sea water to the upper station to fill the top car. In 1947, the hydraulic system was replaced by electricity.
