Accessibility Information

Cellars/JCR are usually accessible via a lift, which can be entered off North Passage (involving the opening of one, relatively heavy door), and takes you to the entrance of the buttery, through which Cellars/the JCR can be entered without any steps. However, renovations mean that North Passage cannot currently be entered, and is narrowed due to scaffolding. This means that currently there is no step-free access to this room. There is padded seating in the form of sofas here, as well as hard-backed chairs. There is a gender-neutral, accessible toilet nearby, at the entrance to the buttery.


Note that since this form is anonymous, dialog is impossible. Feedback is more constructive if you give provide your details or email clarebar-committee [at] srcf [dot] ucam [dot] org directly.
