The Devil's Spittleful

Bridge 7 carries the railway over a bridleway on the Rifle Range Nature Reserve, near the site of the former Rifle Range Halt. The Devil's Spittleful, after which the Reserve and Bridge are named, is a large sandstone outcrop on the heathland to the right of the line when travelling towards Bewdley.

The area near the bridge was used as a filming location for the 1987 TV movie Miss Marple: 4:50 from Paddington. The southern parapet can be seen to the right of the locomotive in this lineside picture of [4566] with a local train.
