Take the first bridge across the river and then turn left passing in front of the Evening Telegraph building and the Bus Garage entrance.
Take the road on the right walking along the side of the Bus Garage and follow the pavement around to the right as it goes behind the Bus Garage, then under the railway and along the by the side of the A52.
Keep going until you reach the Pentagon Island with the Peugeot garage on your right. Carry on across the road ahead with the double pedestrian crossing and then carry on ahead with Kwik-Fit and the car wash on your right. At the far corner of the car wash, cross the slip road and pass under the flyover carrying the A52. Cross the next slip road and then carry straight on with the Pentagon Trade Park and Speedy Hire on your right. Cross the next road and you have arrived.
