Cliff Railway gets a spruce up but delay into reopening continues

Bridgnorth Cliff Railway, which has been closed for more than six months, has had its stations renovated but is no closer to reopening.

The Cliff Railway offices have been redecorated

The funicular railway has been closed since December last year when structural issues were found with a retaining wall.

While one section of the wall has now been repaired, work is yet to start on an second section that needs to be fixed before the attraction can open safely.

Bridgnorth Town Council are awaiting the signature from the operator of the railway to authorise the works.

Owner of the Railway Malvern Tipping said the delay is due to his insurer's solicitor needing the time to review the documents.
