Cliff Lift carriage refit complete.
Saltburn's two landmark water-powered cliff lift carriages were lifted back into place yesterday after a £30,000 refit.
The Victorian funicular opened in June 1884 to transport people from the town's pier up the steep incline to the top of the cliff.
Over the winter, the carriages were removed for their first off-site overhaul since 1992, with an intercom system being added.
The lifts will be open everyday from 11am until 5pm
Admission charges are:
Over 60's 50p
Children 3-16 50p
Children under 3 are free
Saltburn Cliff Lift is based at the Lower Promenade, Saltburn, TS12 2QX
