For many years, the area was utilised for quarrying and the mining of coal which was then transported to industrial centres using the river and later the railway. The first mine shafts were sunk in Highley in 1870, with the production switching to Alveley in 1936. After almost one hundred years, the mine closed in 1969. Work commenced to reclaim the area in 1986 and the Country Park was officially opened in 1992.
