A quick history

Chasewater grew around the local reservoir, which was opened in the late 18th century as a water source for the Wyrley and Essington Canal. Just a couple of years after it was opened, one of the dams burst and the Crane Brook Valley flooded, but it was quickly rebuilt with extra security measures.

The first local mine, the Hammerwich Colliery, was opened in 1849, but closed eight years later. Other collieries were built close to the reservoir and remained active until the coal industry declined in the 1980s. In 1956, the reservoir was officially named Chasewater, and it quickly became used for leisure including sailing and boating. A pier and castle were built in the 1960s, and the country park was established in 1998.
