Blight Town lift is not that hard to find, I actually stumbled upon it before going up against the Queen, but I think you need to have used the short cut to begin with to access it. Unless you went through the Valley of Drakes.
-From Blight Town: From the bonfire in the swamp, hug the wall to your right, until you see a water wheel. It is like an elevator, from there keep climbing up. At the top, there is a chest with the key on your right. Go through the corridor/tunnel , you arrive at the Drakes. Cross the bridge, turn left, open door, and voila, elevator. It takes you to New Londo start area, just take the lift back to firelink.
Of course, with like 2 spiders and 3 fatties in between all that. As well as poison dart shooting enemies that you might want to clear out as there is some good loot there about.
Thank you. I feel dumb now, as I was right at the entrance to Valley of the Drakes coming from Blight Town. I decided not to go that way, unfamilliar with the area, and ran all the way back through the Depths and the tunnel connecting Firelink and Undead Burg.
That is very helpful info!
