  • The total distance is approximately 390m.

  • Maths Square is under redevelopment at time of survey.

  • Leave the library and turn left and travel for approximately 37m from the library exit.

  • Cross the courtyard and use the path located there.

  • The surface of the courtyard is block paving.

  • Turn left and head along the road.

  • The surface is tarmac and slight gradient towards Mile End Road, though there is block paving as an option to your left.

  • There's a slight downhill gradient heading towards Mile End Road.

  • Towards the end of the road you may need to travel between plant plots which have a gap with a width of 250cm.

  • Just before you reach Mile End Road there is a section of block paving.

  • Once you reach Mile End Road head right for approximately 150m.

  • Immediately on turning right there is a tarmac service road with tactile paving on either side (as is shown in photograph 1).

  • The surface of the path is block paving which also feature the occasional manhole cover and a slight gradient heading towards the world (as shown in photographs 2 and 3).

  • After approximately 35m from the previous service roads there is another very similar service road.

  • Then continue along the pavement to Bancroft Road.

  • This is block paving with a slight gradient going towards the road and a slight gradient downhill.

  • Turn right and head down Bancroft Road for approximately 45m.

  • There is a small concrete service road with drop kerbs at either side (as is shown in photographs 2 and 3).

  • After the service road the surface is block paving. At one point there is a rubbish bin on the pavement with a 130cm width between the bollards on the left and the bin.

  • Turn left once you have crossed the service road and take the path leading towards the Maths Square.

  • There is a permanently held open to access this path and it has a width of 120cm (as shown in photograph 1). This can be bypassed by going around it which gives a width to access the path of 180cm (as shown in photograph 2)

  • To access the path either way you will need to overcome a small slope with an easy gradient.

  • The path has a width of 123cm at its smallest and is slightly uneven with a gradient going downwards towards the left.

  • At the end of the path you will have arrived in Maths Square. This can be seen in photograph 5.
