The Windmill mural, Lyham Road was originally painted by Mick Harrison and Caroline Thorp — 1983. the mural had become very faded by the elements over the years and was at risk of being lost . The mural tells the history of Brixton’s Windmill, the only inner city windmill still surviving in London.
