Cannock Chase Guidebooks and Maps
RambleFest displays Cannock Chase guidebooks and maps, and provides the facility for buying them online.
What is now Cannock Chase was once an expansive sweep of a great medieval royal hunting forest. Today it is a surprisingly remote area of high sandstone heather and bracken heathland, with birch woodland and extensive pine plantations. Dissected by secluded valleys and framed by a gentler landscape of fine parklands and attractive villages, this AONB encloses the last oak remnant of the ancient Cannock Forest. Its unenclosed, semi-natural landscapes provide a valuable contrast to the ordered agricultural landscapes dominating the Midlands region.
The one rambling guidebook for Cannock Chase is out of print, although it may be available from third-parties via Amazon.
We include two maps which cover the area, plus other books of interest.
