Many seaside towns sit high above the sea on top of cliffs, as seen here at Shanklin. As they have been developed for tourists many have had to find a way to help people to move between the beach and town without having a steep climb. Lifts, such as this one, were installed in several seaside towns. The first lift in Shanklin was built in 1892 leading directly to the pier that had been built the year before. The pier has not survived to the present day but there is still a lift in operation (2014).
