Folkestone - Leas Lift Lower Station. Re-Opening of the Leas Lift.
The Folkestone cliff lift aka Leas Lift aka Leas Cliff Railway is a water balanced funicular opened in 1885. It was more successful than any other, so much so that with the opening of the Victoria Pier in 1888 a second lift was built alongside and then a third and fourth further along the Leas Cliff. Leas Lift was opened as twin lines, a second set was added in 1890, the second set closed in Oct 1966. The first set runs again today and was reopened on July 25th, 2010. The second set of lines are still in place. The water recycling was started in 1890 before this it was drained away.
