Platform 1, EASTBOUND
The easst end of the platform can be reached either via the path leading west from Mill Road or via steps from the east bridge, whilst the west end can be reached via the path leading south from Bell Street.
The path leads west from the gap in the fence, north of the east bridge. There's a fence on each side. The path slopes down as you continue west. Turn left at the bottom towards platform 1, you're near the front of the train. The front of the train is almost opposite the steps to the bridge.
Locate the gap in the railings on the west side of Mill Road then go up two steps, going west. Continue west, down one step then turn right for platform 1, turn left at the end and go down two flights of steps to platform level. You're at the front of the train.
Follow the path leading south from a point a few metres west of the junction with White Street. Take the turning left, this is slightly offset north from the foot of the steps from the west bridge. The path leads southeast with a fence to each side. You pass a lamp post on your right before the path turns left, east. You then pass five lamp posts on your left before you reach the low wall to your left. You pass another lamp post on your left before the path turns left then almost immediately right, then up a slope to platform level. At the top of the slope, move right onto the west end of platform 1, which runs east from here. You're beyond the rear of the train, the front of the train will be opposite the foot of the steps from the east bridge.
There's tactile paving near the edge of the platform. The tactile paving meets the wall across the east end of the platform, which is beyond (east of) the east bridge. Note that, to your right of the tactile paving is a gap between the end of the wall and the slope off the end of the platform. There is no need to go east of the steps from the bridge.
A grass verge runs along the north side of the platform, west of the entrance.
