THE NORTHERN LINE PLATFORMS 1-2
This section includes the lower level, which is the area at the foot of the escalators from the intermediate level plus the passages and bridge to the Northern Line platforms 1 - 2, plus details of the platforms themselves.
There are two separate platforms running approximately north/south with platform 1, northbound lying west of platform 2, southbound. There is tactile paving along the edge of these platforms.
You can either go down the escalator from the intermediate level, the right-hand escalator is normally the one you need, or use the central stairs.
If you use the stairs, go down three, 17, 17 and three steps, going east to the foot of the escalators. Beyond the foot of the escalators, the passage divides into two, with the right-hand (south) side being the entrance, whilst the left leads from the exit. A wall with billboards faces the stairs.

The wall retreats to the right (south) twice with a fire extinguisher on the west wall of the first recess. The wall in the middle of the passage separates the entrances to platform 1, northbound, on the left and 2, southbound, on the right.
Go down 20 steps, going east onto the platform, there is a barrier in front of the entrance. You're near the front of the train.
Continue east across a bridge over the Northern Line before turning right (south) at the end. Go down 20 steps, going south, turn right (west) at the bottom, onto the platform. There's a metal barrier across the entrance, you're near the middle of the train.
Go up 20 steps, going west and continue towards the escalators.
