Where: Windmill Gardens, West end of Blenheim Gardens, Off Brixton Hill, SW2 5EU
Amongst the gig venues, chicken shops and bustling traffic of Brixton – you’ll find an old windmill. Yes, a windmill. This fantastic site, located just off Brixton Hill, has recently been renovated and reopened to the public and now - provided you book in advance - tours of the windmill’s upper floors are in session.
Guides take you round in small groups and there’s the opportunity to learn just how this old place used wind-power to make stoneground flour.
Once you’ve fallen in love with the place like we have, find out about the fundraising campaign which hopes to get Brixton windmill grinding flour once again.
