The Abbey Yard was used in its later years as an Oil Dispatch yard, from 1960 after the WD closed it, BR(WR) put a spur onto the Severn Valley line at Burnt Mill so that oil tankers can be unloaded into road tankers on the site, this survived untill 1988 when the track was in too bad a state to continue.
