We took the family to Birches Valley to visit the Foresty Commission's Gruffalo trail. We brought a guide to the trail and paid for parking that was the only expenses. The children absolutely loved the trail. The heavy rain didnt even dampen their enjoyment. The more permenant trails were almost as enjoyable. We love the fairy tree. We will be... More

I grew up in Stafford and spent a lot of my childhood on Cannock Chase - bike riding, walking and having picnics. Each year, as a family (about 50 of us!!!) we meet up for a walk and picnic. This week I have been dog sitting and have absolutely loved walking on the chase each day. It is so beautiful... More

What a wonderful area we have in Staffordshire. I'm lucky to be local and enjoy running twice a week with my two Labradoodles covering large parts of the Chase. On occasions you can feel you have the place to yourself apart from the odd deer. Get out and enjoy it.

My and my partner went to Cannock Chase one Saturday after noon in August. Where we parked at Cannock forest was free. We found the area to be beautiful and scenic. We walked over an hour through a forest and into wide open plains, up and down hills, seeing wonderful views. Well worth a visit.

I took my 5 year old grandaughter to birches valley and we took a walk down a path to be told by a mountain biker that we were on a mountain bike track and it was dangerous for us - his tone was quite harsh and critical of us. Having had to persuade the 5 year old to even venture... More

Find the special places and you can still get away from the rat race! But the mountain bike brigade have ruined many peaceful areas! Go Ape at slitting mill is great fun!
