The Brixton Windmill

This content requires HTML5/CSS3, WebGL, or Adobe Flash Player Version 9 or higher.

The Brixton Windmill is London’s last and only working windmill. It was built in 1816 and worked until 1862 when the newly built housing prevented the wind from reaching the sails. In 1902 it was converted to work by steam power and ceased working in 1934 after which the mill became derelict. The mill was restored in 1964 and again in 2010 since when it has been working both as a mill and an education centre.
