Cannock Chase

Cannock Chase is a mixed area of countryside located between Cannock[?], Lichfield, Rugeley[?] and Stafford. It comprises a mixture of natural deciduous woodland, coniferous plantations, open heathland and the remains of early industry, such as coal mining. Despite being relatively small in area, the chase provides a remarkable range of landscape and wildlife.

There are a number of visitor centres, museums and waymarked paths. Additionally, there are many unmarked public paths.

On its north-eastern edge can be found Shugborough Hall, home of Lord Lichfield[?]. At its southern edge are the remains of Castle Ring, a bronze age hill fort.
