FIND A PLATFORM FROM AN ENTRANCE
You can reach platform 1, eastbound via steps from Station Road, or via the ramp from the car park off Station Lane. Platform 2, westbound, is reached via the ramp from Station Road.
As these three entrances are quite close together, we won't explain every combination of reaching each platform from each entrance, including the footbridge.
To Platform 1, Eastbound|
To Platform 2, Westbound
As you follow Station Road, down the hill, the road veers left, just before the rail at the top of the stepped entrance. For the ramp entrance, continue along Station Road then take the turning left into Station Lane. The pavement veers slightly left before you find the turning left which is the top of the ramp.
From the Stepped Entrance|
From the Ramp Entrance
Turn left, round the end of the rail and go down a flight of steps to platform level then turn right. As you continue forward, you pass the level entrance to the ticket office on your right before you reach the platform. There's a drainage channel and a slight slope up before you reach the tactile paving. We believe you're beside the rear half of the train.
GO TO END
Having turned left, away from the car park, continue down the ramp onto the platform then turn left. We believe you're behind the rear of the train. Continue, past two flower beds on you're left, to reach the wall of the ticket office.
GO TO END
You can either approach the entrance down the hill from the shops and turn left, or follow Station road, round the corner to your right then across the tracks and turn right.
Having turned away from Station Road, you need to move left then right to go round the barriers before going down the first slope. At the bottom of this slope, turn right (180 degrees) then go down the second slope to platform level. You'll need to move left then right around the barriers at the bottom.
As you reach platform level, the waiting room, with a help point is in front of you. turn left onto the platform, you're near the front of the train.
HOW DO I…?
