Featured on "Central Tonight" just now. Apparently on the market for
a guide price of seven to eight hundred thousand. But does come with a guesthouse, a flat, and two tea-rooms!
Said to be "profitable".

Wrong. The YouTube offering is so bad it's truly awful. Mind you I can't offer judgement on anything after the first minute.

The green sky at 22 seconds clinched it for me.

Very quirky -- but in an odd way I rather like it!

From the Express & Star [published 03 November 2018].
https://www.expressandstar.com/entertainment/2018/11/03/bridgnorths-cliff-railway-to-close-for-engineering-work/

Bridgnorth Cliff Railway

Reported will be closed for engineering work on Monday 12 November and due to be re-opened on Saturday 17 November.
Also some local history about the contractor involved.

This forum post is a snapshot extract from an external web site and is not necessarily updated to reflect change. Always refer back to and check the original site to confirm details are still correct.

I suggest the repair task may well be challenging as it will involve working on a steep incline?

The Cliff railway has its own web site which has lots of history and technical information.
