Overview

There are three exits from this station: to the car park, the subway or Mill Road.

There is step-free access to Mill Road and either stepped or step-free access to the car park from platform 1, bi-directional.

There is lift and stairs access to platform 1 via the bridge and stairs access to Village Road via the subway.

There's tactile paving along the edge of each platform and at the top and bottom of the steps to the car park. Note, at the time of our survey, there was no tactile paving at the top or bottom of the steps to the subway, though there are bright coloured nosings on the steps.

Note that platform 1 is used bi-directionally so the doors will open as follows, as you face the front of the train:

To the Car Park

From Platform 2, Via the Bridge

Via the Lifts

Go beyond the front of the train, the foot of the steps is in front of you, move right and continue beyond the steps, to the lift, in front of you. Note that there are structural pillars between the steps and the lift.

The call button is to your right of the door, go up to bridge level then leave via the same door. Turn left and continue to the end, the lift door is in front of you with the call button to your right of the door. Go down to platform level, leave via the same door and continue to the side of the steps in front of you then turn left along the platform. Continue, past the ticket office, to the turning left towards the car park. You can either continue down the nine steps or turn left then right (180 degrees) down the ramp.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

Go beyond the front of the train, the steps to the bridge are in front of you. Go up two flights of steps to the bridge, turn right and continue to the end. Turn left, go down a flight of steps then turn left (180 degrees) and go down another flight of steps onto the platform. Continue, past the ticket office, to the turning left towards the car park.

GO TO END

From Platform 1

As you go from the front of longer westbound (rear of eastbound) trains, you pass a series of posts, seats etc before you reach the path leading right towards the car park.

As you go from the rear of westbound (front of eastbound) trains, you pass the ticket office building before you reach the path leading left towards the car park.

Turn away from the tracks and follow this path. The nine steps down to the car park are in front of you, go down the steps and continue along the pavement. If you prefer the ramp, turn left before the top of the steps, go down the first slope then turn right (180 degrees) and go down the second slope before turning left onto the pavement.

Note that this pavement leads into Village Road and, as such, may be preferable to using the subway.
