Video: Brixton's Old Market Barrows

The Heritage of London Trust is launching a complete restoration of the remaining 15 historic barrows in Brixton market.

A temporary workshop will be set up under Brixton’s railway arches, and a specialist wheelwright will repair or replace the wheels. All wood will be repaired using ash, elm or oak, keeping the original timber where possible. The historic lettering, once marking owner and pitch, will be recarved, and the barrows will be repainted and donor plaques fitted.

Interesting; I never knew about these! Would love to see them brought back.
