Our Mill Memories book is based on interviews with 26 local residents about their memories of Brixton Windmill, the area around it, and the importance of bread and flour production.
We also produced an exhibition and a performance based on material gathered in the interviews. You can see an electronic version of the book here or buy the real version on our open days at Brixton Windmill.
The Friends of Windmill Gardens have launched a big public appeal for money to get Brixton Windmill grinding again by 2016 – its 200th birthday!
A fund of £20,000 – to be raised in £5,000 stages – will help us sort out the best way to produce flour without affecting our popular free public open days and school visits at Brixton Windmill.
For more information on how to donate, see Flour Fund.
The Friends of Windmill Gardens were formed in 2003 to raise the profile of Brixton Windmill and campaign for its restoration. Now the mill is working again, we are helping to educate visitors and improve the surrounding park.
