From the East Steps

From just to your right of the bike shelter, you go up nine steps, continue to the wall in front of you then turn right, go up the second stage of the ramp from the car park and turn left.

From here, you can continue onto the platform or take the turning right (west) for the ticket machine which is on the right-hand (north) side of the path, before the foot of the steps to the bridge. As you reach the platform, we believe you're near the front of shorter trains and about in the middle of longer ones.

GO TO END

From the Ramp

As you face the tracks, turn left and go up the first slope. Turn right (180 degrees) at the top and continue to the top of the second slope then turn left.

From here, you can continue onto platform 2, eastbound, as you reach the platform we believe you're near the front of shorter trains and about in the middle of longer ones.

Alternatively, you could take the turning right towards the ticket machine or turn left for the ramp towards platform 1, westbound.

If you turn right, continue to where the fence on your right retreats before the west steps from the car park, the machine is now on your right.

If you turn left, continue up the slope, at the top, turn right (180 degrees), continue to the top then turn left and go over the bridge. Turn left at the end, go down the first slope then turn left (180 degrees) and go down the second slope to platform level. Follow the fence on your right then turn right onto the platform. We believe you're beside the front half of the train.

GO TO END

From the West Steps

You go up seven steps away from the car park, turn left then go up five steps to platform level. From here, you can continue forward for the ticket machine and platform 2, eastbound or turn right (180 degrees) for the steps to the bridge.

As you go forward, you pass the ticket machine on your left, before the fence juts out, move right and continue forward, following the fence on your right then take the turning right and continue onto platform 2, eastbound. We believe you're near the front of shorter trains and about in the middle of longer ones.

GO TO END

Go up six steps, turn left (180 degrees) then go up three times eight steps to the bridge. Turn right, continue to the end then turn right again. Go down three times eight steps, then turn right (180 degrees) and go down six steps to platform level. Turn left onto the platform, we believe you're beside the front half of the train.
