Upper Building, Cliff Tramway, Saltburn


The iconic Cliff Tramway at Saltburn-by-the Sea connects the town with the lower promenade, pier and beach - 120ft (37m) below the cliff. The tramway was opened on the 28th of June 1884. More about the Cliff Tramway.

Situated on the cliff top, is the upper building - the brakeman's cabin and the gates for the carriages. The building is Grade II* listed on the National Heritage List for England.
