BRIXHAM
The sheltered port of Brixham has one of the largest fishing fleets in England where a recently built fish market on the Brixham quayside lands the catch for exporting fish and shellfish to top restaurants all over Europe. Nearby Berry Head nature reserve, a conservation area, has the largest bat colony in the UK. Famous for its Napoleonic connections is the Berry Head Hotel, previously a military hospital and the former residence of Reverend Lyte who wrote the hymn 'Abide with Me'. Within walking distance is the town centre where there are shops, restaurants, coffee shops and bars. On sunny days one can also sit on the quayside to enjoy a glass of wine, a seafood platter or crab sandwich served by one of the kiosk traders -- or take a ferry across to Torquay. The town hosts regular festivals with the record held for people dressed as Pirates holding hands to form a line over a mile long.
