EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the iconic Leas Lift in Folkestone, Kent. As one of only three lifts in England to operate using water balance, it stands as a testament to Victorian engineering ingenuity. The track gracefully winds its way along the stunning seaside coast, offering both locals and tourists a unique mode of transportation. The brick structure with its charming gable design is listed as a historic landmark, exuding an air of timeless elegance. The intricate tile work and barge board detailing add further character to this architectural gem. Awaiting passengers can be seen on the verandah of the quaint waiting room, eagerly anticipating their leisurely journey up or down the cliff railway. With its furnicular system seamlessly blending into the picturesque landscape, this coastal attraction has become synonymous with recreation and relaxation for generations. Its presence serves as a reminder of simpler times when transport was not just about getting from point A to B but also about enjoying the journey itself. Through this evocative image captured by Images of England, we are transported back in time to experience firsthand how our ancestors embraced leisure activities amidst breathtaking natural surroundings. Let us cherish these remnants from our past that continue to shape our present-day understanding and appreciation for heritage sites like The Leas Lift in Folkestone.
