Bodies of Water · Wildlife Areas · Specialty Museums
Brixham is a small fishing town and civil parish in the district of Torbay in the county of Devon, in the south-west of England. Brixham is at the southern end of Torbay, across the bay (Tor Bay) from Torquay, and fishing and tourism are the major industries. At the time of the 2011 census it had a population of 16,693.It is thought that the name 'Brixham' came from Brioc's village. 'Brioc' was an old English or Brythonic personal name and '-ham' is an ancient term for home derived from Old English.The town is hilly and built around the harbour which remains in use as a dock for fishing trawlers. It has a focal tourist attraction in the replica of Sir Francis Drake's ship Golden Hind that is permanently moored there.In summer the Cowtown carnival is held, a reminder of when Brixham was two separate communities with only a marshy lane to connect them. Cowtown was the area on top of the hill where the farmers lived, while a mile away in the harbour was Fishtown where the seamen lived. Cowtown, the St Mary's Square area, is on the road leaving Brixham to the south west, in the direction of Kingswear, upon which stands a church built on the site of a Saxon original. The town holds a yearly pirate event which competes for the title of most pirates in one place and this draws visitors from far and wide.HistoryAlthough there is evidence of Ice age inhabitants here, and probable trading in the Bronze Age, the first evidence of a town comes from the Saxon times. It is possible that Saxon settlement originated by sea from Hampshire in the 6th century, or overland around the year 800.

More than just a picturesque setting for ancient colleges, Cambridgeshire contains the country’s most fertile farmland and a scenic countryside intersected by canals and dotted with windmills. Though the region’s chief attraction remains the splendid architecture of the historic university city of Cambridge, visitors should not fall into the trap of assuming that seeing old buildings equals seeing all of modern Cambridgeshire. Extend your itinerary beyond the walls of the ancient city and you'll find a region of small towns and friendly little villages, known for a particularly fine range of country pubs that serve an impressive variety of local ales and beers.
