Brixton is located within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and there is a network of footpaths around the parish including walks by the River Yealm.

These paths are maintained by Devon County Council but are monitored by our 'Parish Paths' Co-ordinator Councillor Huxtable who regularly walks the paths.

There are parishioners who volunteer to walk dedicated footpaths on behalf of the Parish Council on a quarterly basis. If any parishioner walks a footpath and notices anything that needs rectifying please complete the footpath inspection form and forward to the Clerk.

A free leaflet detailing local walks is available at the village shop, the Church, The Foxhound and other local businesses
