Not far outside Birmingham, you will find Cannock Chase, which is an area of outstanding natural beauty and a lovely place for a picnic. It is a really peaceful place to stroll around, with trees, heathland, and streams – and if you are quiet enough and lucky enough you may spot a glimpse of the deer that live there.
You can take a stroll and follow your nose, or pick up a leaflet for self-guided walking and cycling routes from one of the visitor centres.
The chase is also home to two military cemeteries and Freda’s (the mascot of the New Zealand Rifles) grave.
