View northward, towards Ditton Priors; ex-Great Western, Cleobury Mortimer & Ditton Priors Light Railway. The Halt was closed when the branch passenger service ceased from 26/9/38. Goods traffic ceased when the line was closed on 11/9/39, but early in the War the CM&DP 0-6-0PTs (GWR Nos. 28 and 29) had been fitted with spark-arresters and the line was dedicated to military traffic, mainly the Naval Armaments Depot at Ditton Priors. It was formally transferred to the WD in 6/41 and to the Admiralty on 1/5/57. It was not closed entirely until 16/4/65.
