Following government guidance on social distancing for everyone in the UK and protecting older and vulnerable people, the Friends of Windmill Gardens are taking steps over the coming months to adjust our activities accordingly. Regrettably, open days and events planned for April and May, including the Beer and Bread Festival, have been postponed to later in the year, while our heritage walks are cancelled. Our regular tai chi and gardening sessions have also been put on hold for now.


However, we will stay in touch with our volunteers and community through social media and our website to provide content and resources. We will continue to produce flour within Brixton Windmill for the time being in a safe and controlled manner to support the needs of our local retailers. Windmill Gardens currently remains open for exercise, but please follow government guidelines on keeping at least 2 metres away from other people.


We wish to thank all of our supporters at this time and encourage everyone to join us online for new activities and updates on what’s to come at Brixton Windmill later this year.

The windmill is situated in a small park called Windmill Gardens at the top of Blenheim Gardens off Brixton Hill.
