Chasewater Country Park

ChasewaterChasewater Country Park in Staffordshire is perfect for a gentle stroll, bird watching, running, cycling or even a steam train ride. It is located between Burntwood, Brownhills and Norton Canes, in a picturesque countryside setting. It covers 360 hectares, including some 90 hectares of water.

The country park provides a home for many birds and animals, where the keen naturalist can find rare habitats to visit including Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). There are excellent bird watching, walking and cycling opportunities.

In May 2011, Chasewater Country Park and its reservoir were transferred to Staffordshire County Council to secure and strengthen the long-term future of this key regional resource.

Before this, it had been owned and managed by Lichfield District Council, that inherited the country park in 1994 following a local authority boundary change. Since then, millions of pounds have been pumped into the park's transformation, thanks to the work of the district and county council, together with external grant funding.

The water in Chasewater provides the Canals and Rivers Trust (formerly British Waterways) with essential water to maintain levels in the Birmingham Canal Network, and beyond.
