On Saturday August 10th 2019, local historian Gerald Reece ( now living in Devon ), celebrated his 80th birthday with a walk around Brownhills.
Along with his family and close friends, Gerald set off on the walk he called, Brownhills a walk into history, at 10.00 from the Brownhills West Station of Chasewater Railway.
After braving the atrocious weather conditions, the party returned to Chasewater, and a social get together and natter was held in the Railway Museum.
During his visit Gerald kindly donated to the museum, 2 old maps of Chasewater from the early 1800’s.
Despite the weather a good day was had by all, and Chasewater Railway Museum was pleased to help Gerald celebrate his Octogenarianism.
