The discussion on Facebook seems to agree that this is the Highley side of the river, on what is now the site of Country Park Halt, in which case, the coal arriving by aerial ropeway means it must be coming from Alveley pit after 1961.

With the rail wagons, it would definitely have to be on the Highley side. The buildings are recognisably similar to the photo on the SVR wiki: https://www.svrwiki.com/File:Alveley_Sidings-1959-10-07.jpeg
