At Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles, we’re all about community. That’s why our golf course is open…
Welcome to the Museum of Cannock Chase
Go back and experience some of the greatest moments from our community’s past times. Once home to the Valley Colliery, the museum’s grounds were a training pit where thousands of men started their careers in the local coal industry. The training pit is no longer. Instead, we have over 30 acres of green space and scenery on the edge of Cannock Chase and near the Hednesford Hills Nature Reserve. The hills are one of the last areas of heathland in the UK.
At the Museum of Cannock Chase, we strive to ensure you and your family have an unforgettable experience. We have a programme that runs all year round, and what’s more, our museum is FREE to enter! That’s right, you don’t have to pay a penny to come along and experience Cannock’s historic charm.
Situated beside Stringers Hill and Hednesford Hills, you’ll also find two fantastic walking routes and lots of other opportunities to enjoy local wildlife. In our gift shop and gallery, you’ll also find the very best of local art and creative works. There’s always something new to get involved with, whether it be a craft workshop, a meet the author event, or a talk about local history!
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!
There is much more here at the Museum of Cannock Chase waiting to be explored. We run a packed programme of family events and children’s workshops. Plus, an award-winning education service. Other activities you will find at our museum include:
