Get a closer look at Gornal's historic windmill and the breathtaking views from it at Ruiton Windmill's open day

Posted on behalf of Ruiton Windmill Preservation and Development Trust
Have you ever wondered how far you can see from the top of Gornal’s historic windmill?

Would you like to take a closer look inside our extraordinary community building?

You’re invited to join an open day to discover the activities that happen in the Mill, to share your ideas about the potential for this fantastic site and to explore how this historic building can be enjoyed by local people for generations to come.

Come along and enjoy:

  • A tour of the building
  • Dudley Caving Club
  • Dudley and district amateur radio society
  • Talks by a local paranormal group Paranormal Hauntings Investigations
  • Make a windmill activity for the kids
Refreshments will be available and 1st Sedgley Morris will be dancing in the courtyard.

You might want to become a friend of Ruiton Windmill or simply pop along because you’re curious about the iconic gem right on your doorstep.

The event is free and people are invited to just turn up. To keep the event Covid-safe and to manage numbers inside the mill, there may be a little wait. Access to the mill is from Vale Street where there is limited parking. Visitors are requested to consider this when planning their journey.
