"Built in 1816, Brixton Windmill was used by the Ashby family to produce flour. But in 1864, they decided to move production, as ever expanding London and its new buildings prevented the flow of winds to its sails."

  1. About Brixton Hill

    Brixton Hill is the name given to a short section of road between Brixton and Streatham Hill in south London. It slopes downhill towards central London. Brixton Hill and Streatham Hill form part of the traditional main London to Brighton road (A23). The road follows the line of a Roman Road, the London to Brighton Way, which diverges from Stane Street near Kennington, and led south from the capital Londinium to another port on the south coast.
