No idea about trains but bus stop at least 100 metres away. Disabled parking bay about 60 metres away, and only one for several businesses. Parking very busy. If dropped close to door, still at least 20 metres to get to ramp. wheelchair access possible but difficult. You need at least one other person as doors are narrow and staggered. Toilets are impossible for wheelchairs. all one level ground floor. no need for lift. Door to interview room is very narrow, extra wide wheel chair could not get through. If i had not been able to walk a few steps i would have had to hold my interview in the hall. I would also have had to wet myself or use a waste paper basket to pee into if i could not have managed to walk 3 steps to toilet, and trust me, i would have done just that to shame them.
