NZ8911 : Lift to West Cliff

taken 9 months ago, near to Whitby, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Lift to West Cliff
Lift to West Cliff
The entrance leads to a 67 metre long tunnel into the cliff to the lift which takes passengers up the 37m to the exit at North Terrace, near the shelters ( NZ8911 : Shelters and lift building, Whitby ). The lift operates during the day between May and September. The service was opened in 1931 with, initially, two lifts operating. One has since been removed. It was closed for much of 2013 for repairs to corroded parts of the shaft lining.
