Brixton Windmill tours 11 October
All tours of Brixton Windmill are led by volunteers and are free, though donations are always welcome!
On a tour you will see two sets of millstones – the original wind-powered machinery, and the smaller stones installed by the Ashby family in 1902 that were driven by steam. Now they run on electricity and are used by our volunteer millers to produce Brixton Windmill flour.
The tour takes 30 minutes, and you must book in advance. Tours usually get booked up very quickly. If we get cancellations we advertise these on Twitter @brixtonwindmill.
Because of the limited space inside the windmill and government guidelines on social distancing, restrictions may apply during your visit. You will need to bring and wear your own face mask. Hand sanitiser and hand washing facilities are available. Please follow NHS advice on the coronavirus and do not attend if you have symptoms or are in a high-risk group.
We also offer a guided walk of the surrounding area on Brixton Hill.
