Foley Park Halt ? Closed 1970

location: Foley Park Halt
Looking at RA Cooke's Track Layout Diagrams, I would say this is Foley Park Halt - just west of Kidderminster on the SVR. The sidings were for the sugar factory, which is on the right-hand side. Sidings opened 1937, closed 1983. As there's no traffic in the sidings, this is presumably out-of-season. Photo is looking towards Kidderminster.

Mrs Cameraman appears to be taking a photo from the platform. The sugar beet season is, of course, in the Autumn/early Winter, and the sequence of films suggests we are in Spring '69. Angle of the sun shows that this is a late afternoon shot, and the sun is still quite high, so we are getting well on into Spring.

It will be interesting to see whether Mrs Cameraman's shot of this view crops up later.
