Entrances

+ more

The main entrance is on Walton Street and is accessed via steps – there is no hand rail and the steps do not have contrasting markings. This is a secure entrance with manually operated doors. There is an intercom and proximity card reader to the left as you are looking at the doors. Once through the doors you are in an entrance lobby with the reception desk to the left.

There is an accessible level entrance at the rear of the building. You’ll need to come around the side of the building – the surface here is rather uneven and has a relatively steep slope down. After this there is a sloped path along the rear of the building with a hand rail to the right. Please note that the first part of this path has a camber (slight sideways slope). This leads down to the level entrance that takes you into the basement and library. This door is secure and has no proximity card reader. Although there is an intercom here, it is advisable to contact in advice before arriving to ensure that you are able to gain access.

There is no step free access to the ground floor and first floor.
