Platform 1, Northbound

Describe Online


This is a separate platform along the west side of the station. The main building is about in the middle, whilst the footbridge is towards the north end. A bike and car parking area extends north from the building, separated from the platform by a row of bollards.

There is no tactile paving along the edge of the platform.

To Reach

You leave the ticket office via a currently push door, going east. Alternatively, there's an entrance/exit south of the building and another through the car park to the north. We understand that the door from the ticket office is to be replaced by a push button automatic system.

Leaving the ticket office, you go through a short passage with:

The platform is about six metres wide with a row of posts along the middle and a low wall between the platform and bushes.
