Two Events this coming Wednesday – 29th September.

Cannock Chase Mining Historical SocietyGraham Burnett

On the 29th of September at 11.00am the society will unveil an Information Sign at the old West Cannock No.5 colliery site.

This is now owned by the County Council and renamed the Chase Enterprise Centre, Rugeley Rd, Hednesford.

Due to the generosity of the wife of the late Mick Corns we have been able to produce an information sign commemorating West Cannock 5s colliery.

Permission to erect the sign at West Cannock has been kindly granted by the County Council.

After the unveiling of the sign the launch of the long awaited book “The Annals of The West Cannock Colliery Company Limited 1869 – 1957” will take place.  The book has taken over eight years to research and copies will be on sale at the venue. The book also includes West Cannock No.5 Colliery until its closure in 1982. There will also be the chance to purchase books and have them signed by the author Alan Dean, who will be available until 1.00pm.

On Thursday 30th September from 10.00am to 1.00pm the book will be on sale at Hednesford Library, Alan will be available to sign copies of the book.

On Friday 1st October from 10.00am to 1.00pm the book will be on sale at Heath Hayes Library, with Alan available to sign copies of the book

Finally on Saturday 2nd October from 10.00am till 2.00pm the book will be on sale at Cannock Library again with Alan available to sign copies of the book
