Chasewater’s 300 hectares of water and open space is the perfect stage for a whole range of leisure activities including water-skiing, sailing, angling and even a steam railway. There is also some fantastic bird-watching and cycling opportunities.
Chasewater Railway – The railway regularly opens at weekends and bank holidays for steam and diesel train trips to take visitors to Chasewater’s North Shore. The Chasewater railway operates passenger and freight trains along the only remaining section of the former Cannock Chase coalfield network. The Brownhills West Station, built in traditional Victorian style, offers visitors and volunteers comfort and convenience. The station buffet offers a variety of hot and cold snacks and drinks. Some of the railway’s small relics collection will be on display in the main station building this year!
