Chasewater Railway Museum Catalogue
At Chasewater Railway we have a small collection of bricks from local brickyards.
The railway existed to carry coal from the local pits to the canals or to main line sidings. A number of local pits had their own brickworks to manufacture bricks for use in lining pit shafts, etc., and bricks from these yards are those that we like to collect, as the coal, brick and rail industries are all connected together.
We do have bricks from further afield in the Midlands and beyond.

The Cannock Chase Colliery Company made bricks with three patterns – 4 letter Cs which is shown, 3 letter Cs with Co. which is also shown, and 3 letter Cs, which unfortunately we don’t have – so if anyone has one we would be delighted to accept it!

Our small brick collection.
The Chasewater Railway runs on all that is left of a comprehensive railway system serving the local collieries.
In Chasewater Railway Museum we have a small collection of bricks from local brickyards.
The railway existed to carry coal from the local pits to the canals or to main line sidings. A number of these local pits had their own brickworks, and bricks from these yards are those which we like to collect, although we do have some bricks from further afield.
The final photographs for this batch are 2 from the Cannock Chase Colliery Co. Ltd. This Company produced bricks in 3 patterns, CCCC CCC Co and CCC As you can see, we have 2 of them but if anyone has need of a home for a CCC brick we would be very grateful. (Or any other local bricks, please) The museum is open each Sunday.

A few new items in the museum, bought, donated and loaned!
Next, two local bricks to add to our collection – one from Walsall Wood Colliery and one from the Cannock Chase Colliery Co. I think I am right in saying that the Cannock Chase bricks came in three markings – CCC, CCCC and our latest – CCCCo. We have a four Cs one and now a three Cs and Co – now we would like a three Cs one, so if anyone has one in the shed or somewhere, we can find a good home for it!
This loco whistle is on loan from a member who is thinkning of buying an engine. The engine he is thinking of hasn’t got a whistle at the moment so this will be a start! It will also give our curator something to polish other than windows!!
It will be in the museum until needed to be fitted on the loco.
