CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Good news! We are reopening Brixton Windmill for tours in September, on the weekends of 12/13 and 19/20 September. We are also resuming our guided walks around Brixton Hill, starting on 13 September.

Our weekly tai chi sessions and monthly gardening sessions are also continuing.

Following government guidance on social distancing, numbers for all events are strictly limited, so you must book your place in advance. Other restrictions may apply – see details for individual events here.

Our volunteer millers are continuing to produce flour while observing the government guidance on social distancing for everyone. All flour we produce is delivered safely by our volunteers to our established retail outlets, including local shops that remain open to customers and those  that are closed to the public but provide home deliveries of groceries.

We wish to thank all of our supporters for their understanding and patience during this difficult time for everyone.

School visits

A great chance for school groups to learn about local heritage on a visit to Brixton Windmill.
