Three museums day this Sunday – linking Cannock Chase with Chasewater and Aldridge!


What a great idea!

There’s a great thing happening this Sunday (7th August 2016) when a bus service operated by classic vehicles will operate between Aston Manor Road Transport Museum in Aldridge, Chasewater Railway and the Museum of Cannock Chase.

This is particularly useful, as Chasewater Railway are having their annual Charities Day, and the Museum of Cannock Chase are holding a family fun day – so plenty to do at all three venues!

Aston Manor Road Transport museum said:

Come and see historic road transport, historic railways and local mining and natural history, with a free bus between the sites. Our museum at Aldridge, then Chasewater Railway and the Museum of Cannock Chase will be linked by free buses – timetable details soon!


A great day!

Chasewater Railway will be having their Annual Charity Day and the Museum of Cannock Chase have their Summer Family Day, and we can take you to both of them! We’ll be open as normal as well, so you can have a good day out without having to drive around – just look out of the bus windows as the scenery passes!

Chasewater Railway is a wonderful attraction with regular passenger services at weekends and during school holidays, featuring two excellent cafes and a fascinating museum that chronicles not just railway history, but that of our area and industry.
