Introduction

Turn Left from Library entrance and take Cloistered Walkway for 20M

  • The walkway has a block paving surface.
  • Head for the gap between the Library and the Theatre. As you pass through the gap, there is a very slight slope up (photograph 2) and then down (photograph 3).
  • Once through the gap, pass over the drainage grating and continue to the end of the Library building (photograph 4).

Turn Left and take the path between the Library and the Smokin' Bean Cafe for 15M

  • This path has a block paving surface with a slight slope down just as you turn.
  • As you pass the bottom of the Library fire escape staircase, the path narrows to 74cm wide as there is a tree there (photograph 3).
  • There is grating over the tree plot which can be used to extend the width of the path here to 129cm (photograph 4). There is a very small lip at the start of the grating, which could cause a trip hazard.
  • Continue along the path, over the drainage grating and drain covers (photograph 5). There is another tree here, but the path beside it is 123cm wide (photograph 6).
  • Pass over another line of drainage grating (photograph 7), you pass a third tree, but the path next to this is 165cm wide (photograph 8).
  • Past the tree, the path narrows to 130cm (photograph 9), and then the block paving meets the tarmac path beside the Running Track (photograph 10).

Turn Right and take the Tarmac Path for 70M

  • This path runs between the Running Track and the rear of the Smokin' Bean Cafe. It is mainly level, but slightly uneven in places. There are also some drain covers.
  • Continue on the path past the Centre for Workplace Learning. There are slight slopes leading down here (photographs 4 and 5). From this point the path becomes more of a road, so be wary of cars.
  • The path then passes the rear of the Students' Union Bar. There are two patches of tactile paving along here, at the bottom of the ramp and steps leading down from the bar (photographs 6 and 7).
  • Continue along to the end of this path/road (photograph 8).

Turn Right onto the Service Road and continue along it for 40M

  • Follow the road past the side of the Students' Union building. It has a tarmac surface and is very uneven in places.
  • Beyond the Students' Union building, there is a crossroads (shown in photograph 5). Continue straight over this, again being wary of cars, until you reach the dropped kerb on the right hand side of the road beyond the crossroads (photograph 7).
  • Use this to leave the road and join the pavement. The dropped kerb does not have tactile paving.

Continue along path beside Service Road for 90m to Waldegrave Road

  • The surface of the pavement is concrete.
  • There is a side road across the pavement which has a dropped kerb after 30m (photograph 3).

  • The surface of the pavement is uneven after the ramp.
  • Just before you reach Waldegrave Road there is a zebra crossing across the exit to the car park (photograph 6).

  • The bus stop serves route 33.
  • There is seating and a shelter here (photograph 4).
