Funicular is a police procedural mystery thriller is based in and around Saltburn Cliff Lift which is a funicular railway in Saltburn-by-the-Sea, Redcar and Cleveland in the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. It provides access to Saltburn Pier and the seafront from the town. The funicular cliff lift is the oldest operating water-balance cliff lift in the United Kingdom.
Saltburn's funicular was constructed between 1883 and 1884 to replace a vertical cliff hoist, which was used to transport passengers up and down the steep north-facing cliff between the town and the pier. It improved access for tourists to the seafront and beach.
