Could this be a railway line?

Yes,it's the branch from Bearley (on the Stratford to Hatton line),to Alcester (on the Evesham to Redditch line).

Actually it is the Barnt Green - Redditch - Evesham - Ashchurch line. Closed to passengers in 1962 between Evesham and Redditch due to the "condition of the track". It had been a useful alternative route for freight trains to avoid climbing the Lickey Incline.

Think this is where River Alne (on right of picture) runs into the R.Arrow flowing out of Alcester

This is a shot of Alcester taken from Oversley Green looking in a North Westerly direction. The River Arrow is in the foreground. In alcester we see the tower of St. Nicholas Church. In line with the church is a half timbered building in Malt House Lane. Everything fits.

Definitely Alcester, I lived there from 1980 until 1998. Lots of well restored timber-framed buildings,the oldest inhabited one at that time was a 13th century Cruck-cottage. Well worth a visit.
