Clapham Common

There is very little firm information about this mill. The earliest maps that still exist of Clapham date from the 18th century and show the Windmill Inn but not the mill itself, and there are no illustrations of the original mill.

However, a lease dated 1631 lists the contents of the mill (rental £8 a year), though the exact site is not specified. There is also a possibility that the mill was moved to the common from Balham Wood Lane (now Nightingale Lane).
