FoWG has been asked to put the following statement on our website:
‘Due to unforeseen circumstances the Brixton Windmill will not be opening for National Mills Weekend on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 May 2011. If you are interested in coming to future events please email Lisa Rigg at email@example.com with your contact details so you she can let you know about the next opening. Sorry for the inconvenience that this may have caused.’
Late on Friday the Friends were told that Lambeth Council, who are the owners of this Grade II* listed building, had made this decision because of concerns about health and safety and ongoing final restoration works due to complete this coming week.
The Friends of Windmill Gardens are sorry to be the bearers of this disappointing news but we will be present at Brixton Windmill between 2 and 4pm on Saturday and Sunday May 14th and 15th to provide guided tours of the exterior of Brixton Windmill and to talk to visitors about both its history and the major HLF funded restoration works that are nearing final completion.
