Brunet Mill

Since the fifteen century, I have been raising proudly my wings.

The Brunet mill has its origins in the XV century.
 

Located at the exit of Walincourt-Selvigny, on the road to Dehéries, after crossing the Gard wood, you will see it - on top of the hill - showing proudly its wings above its remarkably restored stone tower.

 

Until the French revolution, it was Walincourt Lord's property.

After 1789, privates run it until 1914. The last miller was Arthur Brunet.

Destroyed by the German in 1916 - who used it as a watching tower - it has been neglected for a long time and it is only in 1991 that an association is created  "L'Association des Amis du vieux moulin" and starts its restoration. Complete success which allows visits today.
