Overview

There is step-free access from platform 1, westbound, via the car parks plus stairs and ramp access onto Station Road near the bridge. There is also ramp access from platform 2, eastbound onto Station Road, plus steps to the middle of the ramp from the rear end of the platform.

The doors will open on your left as you face the front of the train. There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

From Which Platform?

  From Platform 1, Westbound
From Platform 2, Eastbound

From Platform 1, Westbound

As you go from the front of the train, you pass the exit to the southwest car park and shelter before you reach the ticket office building. Beyond this is the gap leading to the car park, continue to the steps in front of you. Turn right then left here for the ramp.

From the rear of the train, we believe you may need to turn back and continue, beyond the ticket office to locate the gap to the car park on your right, followed by the steps and ramp to the bridge.

Follow the right-hand side, beyond the gap to the car park. If you find yourself on gravel, you've overshot, turn back, following the left-hand side then turn left at the foot of the steps.

Via the Ramp

Go up the first slope (parallel to the platform) then turn left (almost 180 degrees, parallel to Station Road) and go up the second slope to the bridge. Move right, continue over the bridge then take the turning left. Go down the first slope, turn left (180 degrees) and go down the second slope then turn right onto the platform. The shelter is a few metres to your left, we believe you're about in the middle of shorter trains and beside the front half of longer ones.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

Go up two steps, then two flights of steps onto Station Road and turn left. Note that there's no rail to either side of the first two steps.

Take the turning left, go down the first slope of the ramp. At the bottom, move left then continue down a flight of steps and turn left onto the platform. We believe you're behind the rear of the train.

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Eastbound

As you go from the front of the train, you pass the shelter before you reach the gap to the ramp. Move right then continue up the first slope.

We think the foot of the steps is behind the rear of the train. As you go from the rear of the train, you pass a gravel area beside the lower slope of the ramp. The gap to the foot of the ramp is before you reach the shelter, turn left (180 degrees).

Via the Ramp

Go up the first slope, turn right (180 degrees) and go up the second slope onto the bridge. Turn right then take the turning right, the steps are in front of you, turn immediately left for the ramp.

Go down the first slope (parallel with Station Road) then turn right (almost 180 degrees, parallel with the platform) and go down the second slope. Turn right and continue, past the foot of the ssteps on your right, onto the platform. We believe your behind the rear of the train, continue to the ticket office, beyond the gap to the car park.

GO TO END

Via the Steps

Go to the rear of the platform, (there's gravel across the effective end), then turn right (180 degrees) and go up a flight of steps. Move left then continue up the second slope of the ramp, onto the bridge and turn right.

Take the turning right, go down two flights of steps, then two steps to platform level. You're at the beginning of the platform, which we believe is behind the rear of the train, continue past the gap to the car park, to the ticket office.
