Chester Road bridge

The Aldridge-Brownhills branch crossed the Chester Road at Brownhills via this bridge (no.26), again only one abutment remains (on the north side). The station here was known as Brownhills Watling Street (Watling St. itself is a few hundred yards away).
The bridge wall doesn't seem very high here, so I would guess the top part has been removed, or the height of the road level increased.
The first shot shows what was probably the entrance to the former station, now gated.
