Deer of Cannock Chase

The Deer of Cannock Chase:

Some species have possibly descended from the original herd introduced from Norman times.
Yet, the deer still roam free and are wild animals owned by no-one.

Slow down whilst driving to avoid collisions – especially during darker months and bad weather conditions and oh yeah, please don’t feed them!




The most prevalent species on the Chase, you are more likely to see a Fallow deer than any other.


The biggest and the most impressive species you will find at Cannock Chase, you will know when you’ve seen a Red.


First introduced from China in the 20th Century, you are lucky if you spot one of these timid, yet interesting creatures.
