To find out more visit

The present group of Friends of Cannock Chase came into being in 1947 as a purely voluntary group...

The group are the eyes and ears of Cannock Chase and understand how important it is for our local community to use Cannock Chase as part of living a healthier lifestyle.

To help make sure that people can enjoy Cannock Chase for future generations, we all should commit to repsecting it.

All the groups and organistions that help keep Cannock Chase as an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' are very happy if its visitors could help as well! Please follow these simple instructions.

When Walking
• Keep to footpaths for your own safety (mining subsidence)
• Keep dogs on leads and under control (wildlife disturbance)
• Take litter home (fire risk and danger to wildlife)

When Horse Riding
• Keep to bridle paths and respect other users of the Chase

When Cycling
• Respect all other users of the Chase and warn of your approach
• Remember riding through the undergrowth is dangerous and causes damage
• There are all ability cycle routes and adventure trails from Birches Valley Forest Centre

• Park in designated car parks and secure your vehicle

Always guard against fire

Enjoy your visit !
