Cannock Chase is the smallest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on mainland Britain and is best known for its open heathland and pine forest and its mining and military history which stretches back several hundred years. The site offers something for everyone, including mountain biking, Go-Ape, fishing and, included here, easy access walks. This is just one of the many walks to choose from. Visit the Cannock Chase website for further information on walking in the area.
