Chasewater Dam

Our visitors are asking more and questions about the water level in Chasewater. The short answer is that a considerable amount of work needs to be carried out on the dam in the next year or so and the water level has to be lowered to enable this to go ahead.

I have added a link to the section of the Lichfield Blog where the latest news will be published.

Wooden Models

One of our most popular display cases is this one – containing a collection of wooden railway models hand-made by the late Mr. Eric Dee of Pelsall. (1931 – 2003).

Younger visitors like to see the models and the grown-ups appreciate the work and skill that has gone into making them.

Mr. Dee was a saddle maker by profession and made these toys for his grandchildren to play with.

He was a fine craftsman and amongst other interests made a fine collection of miniature saddles.

The collection has been kindly donated to the Chasewater Railway Museum by his daughter, Mrs. Jackie Bedward.
