Old Windmill in London – level 1

Old Windmill in London – level 1

30-11-2016 07:00

In South London, there is a 200-year-old building. It is Brixton Flour Mill. It is the only working flour mill in London. For 200 years, it runs in the same way.

Inside the mill, people turn grain into flour. They take the grain and put it in a machine. Inside the machine, two stones crush the grain. The grain turns into flour. It comes out into a bag.

People want to build an educational centre at the windmill. They need people’s help.

Difficult words: flour (white stuff for making bread), mill (a building that turns grain into flour), grain (pieces of a farmed plant which are used for making flour), crush (break).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
