Leas Lift, Folkestone, has secured £4.8m heritage funding enabling the Victorian cliff-side funicular lift, first opened in 1885, to be brought back to life. The rare surviving water lift is one of only three to survive in the UK. It operates using water and gravity and will be restored to its former glory to carry passengers between the seaside and the town. 

ACME is thrilled to be part of this restoration project and is progressing with RIBA Stage 4 working towards a reopening date of 2025.
