Beneath our feet: How agriculture and industry shaped a county

Museum of Cannock Chase, Hednesford
Until Sunday 16 June 2024

The history of Staffordshire has been shaped by the rich wealth of resources found beneath our feet. In this family friendly exhibition we explore the rocks, minerals and soils found below the ground, and how these natural resources have helped shaped the county we know today.

You can find out about the people who worked in coal mining, iron working, pottery making and other industries which have altered the landscape. Large areas of Staffordshire are still agricultural, but these too have undergone great changes.

The extraction of these materials and the pollution from industry have affected the environment, but much is being done to heal the landscape.

Featuring objects and documents from Staffordshire Archive & Heritage’s collections you can explore Staffordshire’s past and find out what lies under foot.
