Aldridge Library situated in Rookery Lane Aldridge, is currently displaying an exhibition of Railway Memorabilia courtesy of Chasewater Railway Museum. The display is housed in two glass cabinets.
To compliment the cabinet display is a screen presentation of the aspects of Chasewater Railway.
The display which was organised by Susan Satterthwaite (a volunteer at Chasewater Railway) will run until the end of May. The Library is open from Tuesdays until Saturdays, (closed Mondays & Sundays).
The artifacts displayed are just a selection of the many on display in the free to enter, Chasewater Railway Museum, which is situated at Brownhills West Station, and is open on train running days.
Why not visit and relive the past.
Cannock Chase Mining Historical Society Books
Did you or one of your family work at one of the many Collieries in the Cannock & Rugeley area. If so why not get one of the mining books published by the Cannock Chase Mining Historical Society. There are 18 books in the series, each one covering one or more of the local Collieries. A very informative collection, written by the miners, who worked at them. These are available from Chasewater Railway Museum. Perhaps an ideal Christmas present. Contact me if you need more information.
