Walking and camping on Cannock Chase

Angel and Rolo enjoying Cannock Chase Unfortunately, since my first post, I haven’t managed to spare the time for a long walk (much to the disgust of the dogs) – however last weekend we were visiting friends in Cannock, and I took the opportunity to have a little explore of Cannock Chase.

I won’t go through the route in detail, as it was only an little explore rather than a full on walk. Here are a few photos:

I hope to come back soon for a longer walk, as the chase was fantastic – heather, trees and some great walks!

We stayed in the The Camping and Caravanning Club camp site right in the centre of Cannock Chase – I can definitely recommend it. The site managers were very friendly, and the site was in a brilliant location – the dog walk is straight onto Cannock Chase! Fortunately we invested in some new, 2/3 season, sleeping bags as the weather was less than perfect for camping!
