To the North of Sedgley Town Centre lies Beacon Hill and Beacon Tower, a Grade II listed building.
Formerly a site of intensive quarrying from 17th century to around the time of the First World War, Beacon Hill has an industrial legacy which has created a series of parallel steep-sided ridges and gullies colonised by wildlife. The site is popular with local residents on account of the panoramic views of the industrial Black Country and contrasting Staffordshire countryside.
Beacon Hill forms part of the Limestone Way with public rights of way running through Sedgley, Wrens Nest National Nature Reserve, Dudley Priory and on to Dudley Zoo and Castle.
Please note: unfortunately due to the poor condition of the internal steps the tower is currently inaccessible to the public.
