Funding Agreed for the Brixton Windmill Mural Restoration Project

We have had the great news that the restoration of the famous Windmill mural, Lyham Road by Mick Harrison and Caroline Thorp — 1983 has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Positive arts will be bringing the mural back to life and the unveiling will be linked to the Queens Jubilee celebrations on the 4th June!

This mural is very faded. Painted in the early-eighties, it shows what can happen to these murals over time. The mural tells the history of Brixton’s Windmill.

The windmill, found in Blenheim Gardens, off Brixton Hill, was built in 1816 and is the only surviving of its kind in inner London.
