Cannock Chase is one of our favourite places to spend time so this week we decided to purchase a Discovery Pass. The main selling point for us is that the pass entitles you to free parking for 12 months. With standard parking charges £4 per day this really is a super saving for regular visitors to Birches Valley. The cost for the Cannock Chase Discovery Pass is £40 which also includes Hicks Lodge.

Why buy a Discovery Pass?

  • A great way for you to support your local forest.
  • Free car parking at your local forest for you and your family.
  • A seasonal e-newsletter, with forest news and events.
  • Great local discounts including 15% off Go Ape, 15% off Forest Holidays, 10% off Paramo Clothing and 10% off Muddy Puddles*.
