FIND AN EXIT FROM A PLATFORM
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 Platform 2, Eastbound
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.
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!
There is level access into the car park.
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.
GO TO END
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 that 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.
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 into the car park.
GO TO END
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.
