From Platform 1, Westbound

There's one exit from this platform, beside the front half of the train.

As you go from the front of longer trains, you pass the mesh fence, with posts along the edge of the platform, before you reach the turning right to the exit. There's a "Way Out" sign on a post in the middle of the platform, near this exit.

As you go from the rear of longer trains, you pass the mesh fence with a series of posts along the edge of the platform before you reach the shelter. The exit is just beyond this.

Turn away from the platform. From here, you can turn right for the steps, or left for the ramp to the bridge.

Via the Ramp

Take the turning left at the exit and continue up the first slope. Turn right (180 degrees) then go up the second slope onto the bridge and turn right. Continue to the end then turn right, go down the first slope, turn left (180 degrees) and continue to the bottom of the second slope.

Turn right (180 degrees), go down the third slope, turn left (180 degrees) and go down the fourth slope, before turning right into the car park.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

Turn right at the exit, go up six steps then turn left (180 degrees), go up three times eight steps, onto the bridge and turn left. Continue to the end, turn left then go down three times eight steps, turn right (180 degrees) and go down six steps to platform level.

From here, you can continue forward for the east steps, or turn left for the west.
