From the same bridge as ST9572 : Calne to Chippenham Cycle route facing the other way, toward Calne.

"The Calne Branch actually ran from Chippenham to Calne, but during WW2 it served as the rail link to military installations at Yatesbury & Compton Bassett. There were 2 midway stations (halts): Stanley & Black Dog. The line opened late 1863, closed late 1965."
