Hednesford is steeped in history, and if you’re planning to visit, there’s certainly plenty to see.

The town is nestled on the edge of Hednesford Hills and Cannock Chase which is a recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

From soldiers to miners, Hednesford has been home to many families over the years, whose relatives still visit the area to remember their loved ones.

Miners bricks (holding the names of all the miners who worked at the local collieries) and a large scale replica of a traditional miners lamp are situated around the top of Market Street, at the front of Hedgeford Lodge.

The Museum of Cannock Chase holds regular exhibitions and craft events for all ages and has a permanent mining exhibition as well as many old photographs and memorabilia from Hednesford throughout the first and second world wars. See their website for latest details.

The war memorial at the entrance to Hednesford Hills is popular with visitors to the town and a walk up over the hills is a must.

Hednesford Park is undergoing a major re-development, thanks to Heritage Lottery Funding and will provide an amazing place for residents and visitors.
