Elevator aficionados continue flocking to Sevenoaks Shopping Centre to check out the mall’s elevators.

Pair of Sevenoaks Shopping Centre elevators being raved about on YouTube

The Sevenoaks Shopping Centre elevators have once again created a buzz online.

The well-liked lift, which was the subject of a viral video reported on by The News back in December, has been recorded and uploaded to YouTube again.

This time it’s the BC’sVators YouTube account that has highlighted the local elevator, which is identified as a 1975 Montgomery G&P Hydraulic model by the user.

However, this particular user doesn’t seem overly thrilled with the model.

“Overall not really a bad elevator,” he states, while standing inside it.

“The door doesn’t close until you push one – I hate that,” he adds.

The same account has also highlighted a similar model that is located in The Bay at Sevenoaks.

It appears to be the same model and year elevator, but the one in The Bay has a different interior.

The walls of that model are adorned with a wood design and there is also a different floor to the lift.

The user appears to like this model more, noting in the description that it’s “very nice”.

“It’s pretty big,” he adds, noting the roominess of the model.

Sevenoaks Shopping Centre was built in 1975, so if the information regarding the elevator is correct, that lift has been in operation for close to 45 years.

The Montgomery Elevator Company was founded in 1892 and based in Moline, Illinois. The company was acquired by the Finnish based KONE international engineering and service company in 1994. At the time of the sale, Montgomery was the fourth largest elevator company in the U.S.

One of Montgomery’s claims to fame is the unusual elevator tram in the St. Louis Gateway Arch.

The Sevenoaks elevator is located in the southwest region of the mall, near Chatters Hair Salon.
