Brixton Windmill Memories exhibition extends Minet Library stay

The Brixton Windmill Memories exhibition has extended its stay at the Minet Library into October. This project interviewed 26 local residents about their memories of Brixton Windmill, the local area around the windmill, and the importance of bread and flour production. The interviews were an oral history project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the All Our Stories scheme. This was connected to an exhibition and a theatrical performance as part of the Big Lunch in May, and was introduced to the Minet as part of Lambeth Archives Open Day. Brixton Windmill also hopes to get grinding again by 2016 – its 200th birthday! The Minet is located at 52 Knatchbull Rd, London SE5 9QY.
