Staffs DA invite you to Gentleshaw & Cannock Wood Village Hall for their traditional Halloween Meet.

Come and join Staffs DA celebrate Halloween! It’s always a great event with the kids playing “trick or treat” around the units. Fancy dress is almost compulsory (not really but you’ll enjoy it!). It’s also our last organised meet of the year so time to say goodbye to all the fair weather campers -until next year at least!

Here’s last year#s fun! – https://www.staffordshireda.co.uk/halloween-2019-with-staffs-da-at-gentleshaw/

**Important note – we can’t allow any sparklers or fireworks on the site unfortunately – it’s a ruling from HQ re insurances**

Hoping to have pumpkin carving for the kids so “bring a pumpkin”!
More information to follow.

The site is a short walk to the Park Gate inn and not far from the Rag and Redmore restaurants. It’s also on the doorstep of Castle Ring, and Iron Age Hill fort – part of Cannock Chase (Area of outstanding natural beauty) – perfect for walks and bike rides. The views from the site are beautiful too.

The rural village of Cannock Wood is in the Cannock Chase Council administrative district of Staffordshire. The village lies on the south-eastern edge of Cannock Chase adjacent to the Iron Age hill fort known as Castle Ring, which at 801ft above sea level is the highest point on Cannock Chase. Cannock Wood has the distinction of being the only village completely within the boundaries of the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a fact of which the villagers are very proud.

It is not known how long Cannock Wood has existed but it is recorded that in 1666 it was a hamlet of eighteen houses and that in 1851 there were ‘a few good farms and 275 inhabitants’ with ‘a large proportion of the open heath, where there are a number of cottages with small plots of garden ground attached to them’.
