The arch and wall here were used to prevent a slippage of the Trafalgar Colliery spoil heap onto the line, and the arch was intended to be used as a bridge to allow further spoil to to be carried onto the other side (right) of the track.   Whether it was ever used for this purpose is not certain.
  
I had hoped to photograph the site of Serridge Junction, but I failed to recognise the location as it is now overgrown (I have a feeling I would need a GPS system to aid in locating it).
