Station site today
All railway-related bridges, overbridges and small relics remain in situ between Wednesfield and to the north of Willenhall Stafford Street and are now used by motors and pedestrians but the trackbed to the north towards Short Heath where the former over bridge carried onto an embankment is fenced off and heavily overgrown and is still visible on Stringes Lane.
