The Museum at Chasewater Railway is located in the Heritage Centre at Brownhills West Station and contains a large collection of railway artefacts, along with related mining and local history items.
The Museum has been awarded a grant by Arts Council England from its Covid-19 Emergency Response Fund.
The grant of £3745 is to cover electricity costs to ensure the Museum's fragile collections can receive appropriate environmental control in these difficult times.
