Overview

There is level access from platform 1, westbound onto the car park and stairs access from platform 2 via the bridge. There is also steep access from each platform onto the road bridge. Note that these latter routes are too steep for some users. See the Environs page for details.

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 waiting area, then the wall of the building. Note that there's a post in the middle of the platform, outside the building. You then pass a notice board with a map of the area, before you reach the turning right to the car park. From here, you can turn right then left towards the road bridge, or continue forward to the steps to the bridge.

As you go from the rear of the train, you pass the steps to the bridge before you reach the turning left into the car park. Note that you can walk underneath the rear of these steps, be careful!

If you're going via the bridge, turn left (180 degrees) beyond the foot of the steps, otherwise turn left into the car park then left again.

Via the Bridge

Go up a flight of steps, turn left then go up five steps. Continue, down five steps then turn left and go down a flight of steps then turn left onto the platform. We believe you're near the front of the train.

GO TO END

Via the Road Bridge

Having left the platform, you can turn left and continue, up the steep slope, there's a hand rail to each side. At the top of the slope, you go up three steps onto the pavement of Main Street.

Turn left, continue over the bridge then take the turning left. You go down a steep slope with a hand rail to your left. The path veers right towards the bottom before you turn left onto the platform. We believe you're before the front of the train, turn right and continue towards the steps to the bridge. Note, you can walk underneath these steps, be careful!

GO TO END

From Platform 2, Eastbound

As you go from the front of the train, you may pass the beginning of the path to the road bridge, before you reach the rear of the steps to the bridge. Note, you can walk underneath these steps, be careful! If you want to go over the bridge, go beyond the foot of the steps, on your right then turn right (180 degrees).

As you go from the rear of the train, you pass the covered waiting area before you reach the foot of the steps to the bridge, in front of you. If you want to go to the road bridge, continue beyond these steps, then take the turning left, just before the end of the platform.

Via the Bridge

Go up a flight of steps, turn right then go up five steps. Continue, down five steps, turn right and go down a flight of steps onto platform 1. Take the turning left from here into the car park.

GO TO END

Via the Road Bridge

Turn away from the platform then follow the path, which turns right then veers left. There's a hand rail on your right. Continue to the top of the slope, onto Limefield Road.

Turn right then take the turning right, go down three steps then continue down a very steep slope. At the bottom, take the turning right onto the platform, near the rear of the train.
