  • When you arrive at the station, come down the stairs and turn right towards the ticket hall;
  • Turn right out of the station and follow Lower King’s Road over the canal up to the High Street;
  • Turn left at the traffic lights and walk past the shops (you pass a Tesco on the left). St Peter’s is just after the last row of shops on the High Street
