Coal mining began here in the 18th century, which was known then as Cannock Chase. By the late 1860's the village was known as Chasetown. It is actually an area in the town of Burntwood.

Little remains of the coal mining period; other than the reservoir that filled the canals used to carry the coal to Birmingham and the Black Country, although Chasewater Light Railway has now been restored.

Chasetown can however boast a football and rugby team, and also has a specialist sports college.

The images of Chasetown on this page are kindly shared with us from the collection of Wendy Jones.
