That takes me back, to the early fifties. My friends and I, under the age of eleven, used to climb the cliff, rather than use the pathway, let alone the cliff lift. My parents never guessed. The cliff is now fenced off. How are kids supposed to have fun nowadays?

I disagree that the Bournemouth one is the shortest.the shortest is also in England,in London,and goes up by the steps leading to St Paul’s cathedral.theres one recently reopened in Los Angeles, USA,which is very short.i did a short one too in Zagreb, Croatia,a few years back.i reckon that the world’s longest funicular must be the cairngorm one in Scotland?
