The Museum of Cannock Chase site was once home to the Valley Colliery; the training pit for thousands of young men beginning their working lives in the local coal industry. The pit has gone and in its place are over 30 acres of green space on the edge of Cannock Chase, at the gateway to the Hednesford Hills Nature Reserve.
