Guide training

Sun 11 Feb 18

The Friends of Windmill Gardens are running training sessions for volunteers who are interested in becoming guides or stewards on days when Brixton Windmill is open to the public.

Training is divided into two parts.

Part 1 is an introduction to the history of windmills in general, the 12 windmills that once stood in Lambeth and details of the history of Brixton Windmill and the Ashby family.

Part 2 (taking place in the windmill) will be advice and practice on leading the different kinds of guided tours we offer at Brixton Windmill.

We will also cover the essential health and safety training you will need for insurance puposes.

On Sunday 11 February we will be running part 1 training for new volunteers and part 2 training for volunteers who have previously attended part 1 training.

If you cannot complete your training on Sunday, we will be repeating these training sessions on Saturday 17 February, Sunday 18 March and Saturday 24 March.

To book any of these training sessions, please email, putting "Guide training" in the subject line, giving the dates you would like to attend and whether you are interested in part 1, part 2 or both.

We will be meeting at Brixton Windmill in Windmill Gardens, at the west end of Blenheim Gardens, SW2 5EU.

Sunday 11 February, 10am - 1pm
