Charge was proposed for Anderton Lift

IN RELATION to Roger Fox's article, when the lift re-opened after renovation in the early 2000's it was proposed that there would be a £30 charge, but this was very quickly dropped, writes Linda Andrews.

Until now the lift has been free to use if you turned up on spec, but there was a £5 booking fee if you wanted to guarantee a passage at a particular time.

Got round it

As far as I can see, they have got round the original regulation by insisting that you can't go on the lift without pre-booking, and its a booking fee, not a fee to use the lift.
