Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)
Cannock Chase has been an AONB since 1958 due to its beautiful landscape, the wildlife and history. It is the largest surviving area of lowland heathland in the Midlands, which is a threatened habitat in the wild. There is an extensive area of forest and woodland to explore, as well as open field areas to relax and play in. If you’re lucky, you may even see some wild deer in the Chase, that have almost certainly descended from the herd introduced during the Norman times.
