The lift is a remarkable piece of engineering that has carried over 50 million passengers since it was originally constructed in 1885 to serve the burgeoning holiday resort. By alternately filling and emptying tanks fixed beneath the two cars with water, the lift can carry fifteen passengers up and down the cliffs which separate the town centre from the beach.
