Chasewater Railway highly recommend taking the time during your visit to the colliery line to experience our Accredited Railway Museum, which is located in the Heritage Centre at Brownhills West Station

Chasewater Railway Museum received full accreditation in 2011 by the Museums, Libraries & Archives Council (the MLA). This award is in recognition of our volunteer’s efforts to achieve the high standards of care and of good practice expected of accredited Museums throughout the UK, and to provide a quality experience for those visitors, of all ages and interests, who come to see what the Museum has to offer.

Admission to the Museum is free and also accessible to visitors with mobility difficulties.

Visitors can view a vast array of railway items, some from as early as the 1800s. Although we try to focus on artefacts associated with the local area, with its strong links with the coal mining industry, our collections include items from much further afield. You don’t have to be an expert on railways to appreciate the inspirational displays prepared by our Museum Curator and the team of volunteer helpers.

The Museum is open on train running days  from 11.00am till departure of the last train.

  1. Hello! I’ve just enjoyed having a look around your fascinating site, thank you!
    I’m a member of the Avon Valley Railway’s fundraising team, and would like to get in touch to see whether it might be possible for us to use some of your lovely photos of “Littleton no. 5”. The loco has just been donated to the AVR so we’re looking for images to promote our fundraising efforts – we intend to return it to steam for the first time in two decades.

    I think sending this should provide you with my email address, but if not let me know and I’ll post it here.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,


  2. That’s wonderful, thanks John! Would you mind dropping me a line ( so we could arrange getting hold of some high resolution files if possible?

    All the best,

  3. Good evening, we are restoring a Burrows engine “Windle” at the Ribble Steam Railway here in Preston. We would like to have a close look at “Willy the Well Tank” in order to check some details. I have spoken to the Flour Mill and they are ok with us doing this. Would it be possible to visit you on a non open day to view “Willy”? Regards Glenn

    1. Hi Glen, I can see no reason why this could not be arranged, given sufficient notice. In the Museum, Tuesdays suit us best. Kind regards, John Tisdale, Chasewater Railway Museum.
