The Clapham Windmill



The Clapham Windmill

A fabulous pub named after a very old windmill from 1665

Location: Clapham Common South Side, Clapham, SW4 9DE

Description: The Windmill pub, which has stood on the Common since at least 1665, owes it's name to a windmill that stood nearby - although where exactly is now long gone.

The miller, Thomas Crenshaw, is noted in the parish records in 1665 as also being an alehouse keeper, but milling must have gradually become less important and beer selling more so, and by 1789, the Windmill Inn is noted as a very genteel and good accustomed house, many years in the possession of Mrs Simmonds.

Unsurprisingly it also became a staging post for coaches, although Windmill Lane was still a rural track until 1840.

It was here in an upstairs room that the founder of the Boy Scout Movement drew up his first Guide to Scouting.
