About Cannock Chase Country Park
Once upon a time this vast area was the 'Happy Hunting' ground of Kings and Queens of England who came here to enjoy a good day's sport with local Lords and Ladies.
These day's the 26 square miles of Cannock Chase form an internationally acclaimed area of outstanding natural beauty, and the heathland, woodland and valley wetlands are decreed a site of special scientific interest. The rolling heathlands, some flat, others on higher ground, are the largest surviving heathland areas in the Midlands, as such, they provide valuable habitats for invertibrates, along with the rare Nightjar, Lizards and Adders and, important and unusual wildlife include the Cannock Chase berry, a magnificent herd of Fallow Deer and the Woodlark.
There is so much round here that is rare and green, the majestic woodlands, valley's and heathlands, provide an oasis right in the heartland of a great industrial town. A far cry from when the Chase was a private hunting ground for Kings, it is now a paradise for locals and visitors alike. Every corner you turn leads to some fresh delight, there are Bridleways, Forrestry Commission Trails and the Staffordshire Way runs right through.
During it's long history the Chase has been used for mining, charcoal and glass making also feature in it's history. The areas use as a Military Training Ground goes back to the 1870's. It is also known to have been used for training our troops prior to World War one and two.
A short distance away from Cannock Chase is Shugborough Hall, this exquisite mansion is home to the earls of Lichfield. This mansion home stands in beautiful grounds and contains a fine collection of furniture and other period treasures. The grounds are studded with classical follies such as the Arch of Hadrian, the Doric Temple and the Tower of the Winds.
Cosford Aerospace Museum is but a few miles along the M54 and from this point you can also reach two other great houses, Weston Park and Boscobel Hou
