Happy Valentine’s Day from Brixton Windmill a much loved London landmark. A visit to Brixton Windmill is an opportunity to experience the sights, smells and sounds associated with a craft which stretches back over 2,000 years. See the internal workings of the mill and hear the intriguing story of the Ashby family, the millers of Brixton. To find out more, go to brixtonwindmill.org/visit (the windmill reopens on the weekend of 11-12 April, bookings for full tours open in mid-March).

Built in 1816, the windmill was operated for all its working life by three generations of the Ashby family, and was known locally as Ashby’s Mill. It is the only remaining windmill of 12 that stood in the Lambeth area at various times. These included several industrial mills along the River Thames.

This is one of a pair of patent (spring) sails at Brixton Windmill. These are sails with shutters with a spring to enable each sail to be adjusted individually. The Patent sail system allows all sails to be adjusted without stopping the mill. South of the River Thames, sails were known as ‘sweeps’. Want to see more of the machinery at Brixton Windmill? Our 2020 tours start again on the weekend of 11-12 April, bookings open mid March, go to brixtonwindmill.org/visit to book a tour.
