Funicular Railway in Saltburn
An early Start in Saltburn by the Sea.
The Funicular Railway and Victorian Pier as viewed from atop the cliffs at Saltburn by the Sea on vibrant morning in June.

The Funicular Railway (or the Saltburn Cliff Lift), in Saltburn is believed to be the oldest operating Water-balance lift in the whole wide world; although thankfully the cars used to hoist 21st Century passengers up and down the Cliff side have been replaced and refurbished a number of times over the years. The lift was such a tremendous feat of engineering that little else has changed in that time. I am by know means a Victorian Gentlemen but it is certainly true that the mechanism and the interior of the gatehouse, and indeed the ride up and down remain as true to me today as they did when I rode the lift for the first time as a child back in the 1970s. Long may it continue.

Prints: We use Permajet FB Gold Silk 315gsm to provide a sumptuous silk/satin finish on a fine art heavyweight base. The paper has been developed with a natural, warm base tint to emulate the surface finish, texture and coating of the old Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk which recently ceased production, making it the perfect choice as its replacement.

Mount: We use only the finest quality acid-free materials to produce our custom picture mounts.

Postage: Postage and Packing will be added at the checkout. All prints are sent in protective packaging and I try to fulfill your order as quickly as possible. In the event we do not have your chose print in stock we will have a lead time of 5-7 days.
