At the initiative of the Friend’s of Windmill Gardens and the London Borough of Lambeth, a heritage lottery fund grant was secured along with match funding from the community and local authority to restore and conserve this unique building in its parkland setting in the heart of Brixton.

Built in 1816, it is a tangible reminder to all Londoners of the close links that the capital had with agriculture and food production and is the sole surviving structure in inner London that can tell the story of flour milling to future generations.

The project has conserved and brought back into use an important building type and an invaluable community resource and education centre.
