Brixton Windmill
Brixton Windmill
This is the nearest surviving windmill to the centre of London. It was built in 1816 and was driven entirely by wind until 1862. By then, the surrounding area was so built-up that the sails could no longer operate efficiently and they were removed two years later. In 1964, the London County Council restored it with new sails and some reconditioned machinery, most of which was obtained from a derelict tower mill at Burgh-Le-Marsh in Lincolnshire. This is the view from Windmill Gardens, a small park created to highlight the windmill.
