The GreenHut@CEFLyncx

Brixton Windmill Gardens SW2 is a safe space where young people and community grow

Our GreenHut located @BrixtonWindmill is now managed by our Charity, Community Education Foundation & Lyncx (CEFLyncx). The structure  was built in the 1970s and it is located next to the historic Brixton Windmill, a national and local heritage at Brixton Windmill Gardens (Park), Blenheim Gardens in Brixton Hill SW2.

Our GreenHut is set in an enclosed area of approximately, 68.83 square metres (740 square feet) within Brixton Windmill Gardens and is easily accessible directly from Blenheim Gardens, off Brixton Hill, or via footpaths leading through to Windmill Gardens with several bus routes services running on Brixton Hill from and/or to Brixton Underground make our GreenHut a prime location choice for hosting diverse range of Community, Corporate and Commercial events.

It shares immediate boundaries with the newly built Windmill Education Centre to one side, the Themes Water monitoring station to its rear elevation and the Blenheim Gardens Housing Estate to the other side with a clear view of the Windmill Gardens (Park) to its front elevation and a converted warehouse of luxury apartments to the distance of the boundary of the park.
The park has only one entrance which means finding us is very easy because our GreenHut can be seen from the gate to the right leading into the park.


Our GreenHut @BrixtonWindmill is a safe space providing opportunities for children, young people, families and community to be creative, develop and learn to express themselves by engaging in diverse range of stimulation structured activities.

Our GreenHut being in an enclosed space offers opportunity for privacy as well as the freedom to extend activities to the larger open space in the park and still experience the benefits of our structured activities for children, young people, families and the community.

The space is suitable for hosting not just community activities such as youth and community services, but it is also a great space for hosting Corporate, Commercial and Community events such as

      • Meetings
      • Away Days
      • Parties
      • Wedding Reception

The inclusion of Youth & Play, Stay & Play and general community services at Our GreenHut makes our Charity's service offer unique and one of the first One O'clock Club buildings in Lambeth that has changed its use to integrated both early years and post-early years services in the same space.

This is why we took on an innovation approach to develop the Our GreenHut to accommodate the needs of the whole community.

Our response to the change is, we have designed the space and our play and learn service in a way that is wrapped-around our community providing cross-cutting benefits/outcomes for not only all ages of our community but also, encouraging Corporate and Commercial sector involvement for the benefit of the community.

We have in place a booking system that provide opportunity for the community and businesses to support our course through hiring our GreenHut at an affordable rate and/or book to use our 'Secret Garden' that is located at a secret location at Our GreenHut for a quiet reflection time for a group or the individual.
