There are two sets of passages which connect all four platforms, which we'll call the north and south passages.
The escalators reach the north set of passages at Level -1. These passages are north of the middle of platforms 1 and 2, but about in the middle of platforms 3 and 4.
The south passages are near the south ends of each platform. The north passages are the only entrance/exit, whilst we recommend the south passages for changing platforms.
Unusually, the numbers of steps throughout this station is consistent, such that there are 22 steps between the northbound platforms, at Level -1 and the southbound platforms at Level -3. Level -2 is the intermediate level, which includes the landings between flights of 11 steps, or more importantly, the interchange between the south passages which includes the foot of the emergency stairs.
The foot of the escalators is in a rectangular space at Level -1 with:
level passage to platform 1, northbound to Edgware|
passage, down steps to platform 2, southbound
level passage to platform 3, northbound to High Barnet|
passage with steps down to platform 4, southbound
The Level -1 section includes an additional gap to either side (east and west of the gap from the escalators), between the northbound and southbound passages.
There's a rail, in the middle of the platform, across each end of each passage, these are highlighted by yellow strips on the floor leading to either side of the rail.
This is a level passage running east/west between the two northbound platforms.
From either platform, you go up 11, then 11 steps leading away from the tracks, to the Level -1 section.
There are two passages, which run east/west. The one running east from platform 1 at Level -1 and platform 4, at Level -3 lies south of that which goes east from platform 2 at Level -3 to platform 3 at Level -1. These passages are joined at Level -2 by a short passage running north/south.
From Platform 1, northbound to Edgware, you go down 11 steps, going east, to Level -2. You pass the gap to the northern passage on your left, before going down 11 steps, going east then turning left (north) onto the south end of platform 4, southbound. There's tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps.
From platform 2, southbound, you leave the platform, going east, turn left (north) then go up 11 steps, going north, to Level -2. There's tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps.
Turn right (east), into a passage with:
2 blank doors|
door to emergency stairs
gap to southern passage
Continue east, up 11 steps, onto platform 3. There's tactile paving at the top and bottom of these steps.
