# PIR lighting circuit

Hi can anyone help me out i have a hallway and stairs going up into the attic room.On entering the hallway i have a single switch NO.1 this switches on 2 ceiling lights in hallway and i can switch these 2 lights off using 1 side of the double switchNO.2 and vice versa.On the other side of the double swich i can switch on the light going up the stairs to the attic and at the top switch no3 i can switch the stair light off and vice versa.What i want to do is do away with the double switch No.2 and rewire it so that when i swich on no.1 switch at start of hallway this switches on all three lights and i can switch these off using switch No.3 at top of stairs and vice versa i can switch on No.3 and this will switch on all 3 lights.And i can switch these of again using switch No1 at start off hallway.In other words i just want to do away with the double switch...
I have listed the the 3 switches and colours attached to them ..
Many Thanks..
