How to reach the Platforms

To platforms 1 - 3, go down 20 then 6 steps going east to platform level. There is a double centre rail down these stairs. You continue east for about 25 metres to reach the platforms.

Platforms 1 and 2 are not normally used; if you follow the left hand side, you'll locate a fence on your left then a gate across the west end of platform 2. Note that platform 3 is exactly in line with the end of the walkway from the foot of the stairs. There is some, indistinct, tactile paving near the edge of the platform.
