Not strictly SVR, but this section of the Oxford, Worcester & Wolverhampton Railway formed the third side of the Kidderminster, Stourport and Bewdley triangle.

Are you sure it's the southern end? Looks more like the north end and NLS seems to confirm.

I'm only going by a comment on Facebook and the fact you can't see the abutment of the old timber viaduct, which is still there today.
Now you mention it, the road and buildings, although they don't quite match, do look more like the northern end, according to the old maps.
Maybe the abutment is hidden behind that last building. It's hard to tell.

Edit to add:
If you look at the full size picture, it does look like that fence at the end of the parapet curves round behind the building, so I'd say you're right, it does look like the north end.
The road junction and buildings don't look quite right, but they're a closer match than the spinning mill at the other end.
