Closure Pending Repairs to a Retaining Wall on Neighbouring Land

Bridgnorth Cliff Railway was closed at noon on Wednesday 21st December, 2022 until further notice pending the rebuilding of a retaining wall on a neighbouring property. This is a matter beyond our direct control.

Cliff railway engineers reported concerns about the deterioration of the retaining wall. The landowner on whose land the wall sits has been notified and the cliff railway is working with Bridgnorth Town Council to ensure that the works are completed as soon as possible.

In the meantime, the cliff railway’s directors took the decision to close the cliff railway whilst further investigations are carried out and an engineering solution on the adjoining land was affected.

We appreciate that local passengers and businesses, as well as tourists, will be anxious that we re-open and resume normal service as soon as possible. Our neighbour had hoped to have the works completed before Easter, 2023, but in the end the works only commenced a few days before Easter.

We much look forward to when we can re-open the cliff railway and will update these details to advise of the re-opening date.

We thank all our passengers for their patience and support.
