Platform 1, EASTBOUND

Describe Online


This is a separate platform along the north side of the station. The main entrance and ticket office are about in the middle of the platform, whilst the bridge is towards the east end.

Note that this platform can be used bi-directionally and it is important to know well in advance on which platform your train, particularly for westbound services, will stop. Although the route to platform 2 via the bridge is quite straightforward, the accessible route involves a long detour through the local road network, see the Environs page for details.

There's no tactile paving along the edge of the platform.
