Restoring the Brixton Windmill Mural

Back in March of 2012 the London Mural Preservation Society (LMPS) received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore the Brixton Windmill Mural. The mural on Lyham Road painted by Mick Harrison and Caroline Thorp in the mid-eighties is severely fading and cracking.

Vinnie O’Connell from the New Leaf, Charlotte Bill from the Clapham Film Unit and Ruth Miller from the London Mural Preservation Society met up to discuss the possibility of restoring the mural and creating a short film about Brixton’s murals.

Pulling in the people who could help deliver the outcomes, an application was worked on by Charlotte which eventually led to the Heritage Lottery Fund granting LMPS the funding.

There has been great progress on restoring the Mural. All cracks have been filled and the mural has been treated and outlined.
