The fishing town of Brixham is in the county of Devon, and lies at the southern end of Torbay, facing Torquay across the bay. At the time of the 2001 census it had a population of 17,457. It is thought that the name 'Brixham' came from 'Brioc's village'. 'Brioc' was an old English personal name and '-ham' is an ancient term for village. The terrain is very hilly and the town is built around the harbour. The main employment of Brixham is fishing and tourism and the town is part of the 'The English Riveria'. Brixham boasts a replica of the 'Golden Hind', the famous ship of Sir Francis Drake.
Although there is unverified evidence of Ice age inhabitants here and probable trading in the Bronze Age, the first actual evidence of a town is from the Saxon times. The Doomsday Book refers to Brixham as 'Briseham' and at that time the population was 39.
Events in Brixham
Every summer the Cowtown carnival is held in Brixham. This serves as a reminder of when the town
was two separate communities, linked only by a marshy lane. The area called Cowtown was the area on top of the hill where the farmers and agricultural workers lived, and a mile downhill near the harbour was where the fishermen and seamen lived.
