Can anyone confirm, please? And if so, where are the barriers controlled from?

Crabley Creek is worked in the same manner and has no need for exemption.
Crossings like Cave have signs instructing motorists to ring a bell to have the gates opened (suggesting to Rule 99 exemption) although as I say on the day I was there they were being opened between trains so the bell. plungers were superflous that day.
