    Anyone been to Brixton Windmill?

    I want to go and photograph it but not sure if I need tickets first?

    I dont want to go inside, just right outside it to take a good few photos.

    The last time i was there was during primary school trip in the late 1980s. How time flies by....:(

    It's right next to a children's park isn't it? So what's stopping you?

    I used to live near it. Was in the park with my mate, on acid or E, and being disturbed by loud children when my mate came out with "We're mellow but we're not that fucking mellow." Cue funny looks from parents.

    Maybe you had to be there. Tripping.

    Take some nice pics and put them on here.

    There's no problem taking photos from the park that surrounds it.

    this takes me back! I remember the guide talking about flour once being grinded in the windmill. This was when I went as a 9/10 years old. Now 39...
