Repairs to Brixton Windmill sails

You will soon see Brixton Windmill without its sails.  Lambeth Council is commissioning some essential repair work at the windmill. This work includes removing the sails and taking them to the millwright’s workshop to be thoroughly checked, repaired and painted.

There will also be some work outside and inside the brick tower to resolve the ongoing problem of damp which, if left untreated, will harm the building’s structure. 

We are pleased that Lambeth Council owners the Grade II* windmill are commissioning this important work.
