I can't understand why the O.S maps don't show the railway as disused or dismantled. A look over the hedge into the deep cutting reveals large trees where the track should be. They have clearly not sprung up in a couple of years. Sadly the vegetation was far too dense to get a decent picture.

2013 Update... it seems The track is the remnant of the line between Market Drayton and Stoke. It was retained to serve the coal mine at Silverdale, but this pit closed in 1998. The link to the West Coast Main Line was severed by a derailed goods train in 2007."
