Chasewater Railway Museum

Visitors can view a vast array of railway items, many from the 1800s. Although we try to focus on artefacts associated with the local area, with its strong links with the coal mining industry, our collections include items from much further afield. You don't have to be an expert on railways to appreciate the inspirational displays prepared by our Museum Curator

Dogs:

Dog walkers are always welcome at Chasewater Country Park. To help protect rare birds we are asking dog walkers to follow a voluntary code of conduct when visiting. Rare birds, such as the little ringed plover and nightjar are busy building their nests on the shoreline and amongst the heather and heathland, so they can raise their young. This means it is especially important for dog owners to be extra vigilant, keeping their dogs under control and away from sites where birds might be nesting on the ground.
