Cannock Chase Mining Historical Society – West Cannock No.5

This morning, 29th September 2010, saw the unveiling by Alan Dean, Chairman of the Cannock Chase Mining Historical Society, of the latest information sign commemorating the coal miners of Cannock Chase.  This sign was made possible through the generosity of Mick Corns’ widow, who received the thanks of all present.Not the brightest of days but the Ceremony was completed before the rain started again.  Then it was a case of everyone inside for a cup of tea and a biscuit or cake!A nice simple Ceremony, but there are still about 30 sites to have signs erected.  Some have had permission granted and at other sites it is still being sought.

This site is now the Cannock Chase Enterprise Centre, Rugeley Road, Hednesford, owned by Staffordshire County Council, who gave permission for the erection of the information sign.

Best of luck and best wishes to all concerned.
