On Saturday, a sunny October afternoon,
Mr S and I took a wander around Brixham.
In fact, it was our wedding anniversary! ;-)
is very attractive and full of reminders that we are in a fishing town.
Fishtown (the harbour area) and Cowtown ( on top of the hill, where the farmers lived)
At the harbour, you can go on board this replica of The Golden Hind,
Sir Francis Drake's famous ship.
It was here that he made his famous declaration:
'The Liberties of England and the Protestant Religion, I will maintain.'
And finally, this lovely turquoise painted house is known locally as
'The Coffin House' because of its shape.
You can read a lot more about this and many more interesting facts, here:
