In my last article, I pointed out that I’d received extra information on a couple of posts over the weekend – both on the Anglesey/sea question, and also on the Mine Rescue Team image shared by John Sale and Bill Mayo.
That there Clive Roberts – documenter of the history of the Shire Oak Inn and collector of local postcards – has been at it again He’s picked up another postcard of Brownhills at a fair, and mailed me scans of the front and back to post here on the blog.
It’s been another heat bank holiday weekend, and I got to cycling over the Chase and through East Staffordshire – too many pictures for 365days, so I thought I’d do a gallery.[caption id="attachment_15473" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Elderberries, Walton upon Trent[/caption] Continue reading
It’s taken me a couple of weeks to edit this up due to being somewhat busy with other stuff, but it’s not worked out so bad. A ride from near Maquis Drive, on Cannock Chase, up over Rifle Range Corner, past the old Butts, down into Abrahams Valley and out onto the A513 at Seven Springs.

After the dismal depression of last weekend, which I always consider to be the end of summer, today worked hard to convince me otherwise. After sneaking out for an early breakfast, I enjoyed a spin through Great Wyrley, up to … Continue reading
This afternoon, I cut loose and headed for Cannock Chase. The weather wasn’t great and I felt quite down; however, after a heavy downpour as I came through Hednesford and Penkridge Bank, the most perfect, sunny scenery emerged blinking and … Continue reading
More illegal motorbike use – this time, somewhat unusually, on a Sunday afternoon in one of the busiest bits of Cannock Chase. These particular muppets came off a forest track from the Birches Valley direction and were heading down Marquis … Continue reading
I’ve not been as diligent at uploading Panoramio stuff recently as I should have been – sorry about that. Yesterday I added 34 new pictures, and there have been some orphaned uploads since I started blogging, so this seems an … Continue reading
