Friends of Brixton’s historic market barrows will tomorrow (15 September) celebrate the completion of the project to restore them to their former glory.

Friends of the barrows, including people who contributed to the Crowdfunder campaign to finance the restoration, representatives from Heritage of London Trust, Lambeth council, the market traders’ federation and many others will assemble at 6pm at Arch 553 on Brixton Station Road to celebrate the restoration.

See how it was done and the first completed restoration.
