  • This crossing is shown in photographs 2, 3 and 4.
  • After crossing turn left.
  • This area of pavement has an even, tarmac surface with a slight gradient.
  • Follow the path around to the right.
  • The path drops down to a steep gradient around the corner.
  • After approximately 25m turn left to cross the access road.
  • This crossing has tactile paving and dropped kerbs on both sides.
  • This crossing is shown in photographs 9, 10 and 11.
  • After the crossing turn right and follow the path round to the left.
  • This path is even with a tarmac surface and varies between level and slight gradients.
