Valley coal mine, commonly known as Valley Colliery, is located in Hednesford, Staffordshire, UK on which today is the site of the Museum of Cannock Chase.[1] The currently standing museum is housed in some of the buildings remaining from the Valley Colliery.[2] Valley coal mine was a popular coal mine and a training centre until the 1950s.[citation needed].

Valley was just one of many major coal mines dotted about the Hednesford Hills, but Cannock Chase also contained many smaller coal mines.
