History of Brixton Parish

Brixton Parish has a long history which can be traced back to the Doomsday Book. The local economy was traditionnaly based on farming, together with other rural and commercial activities around the River Yealm.

The Village of Brixton visibly reflects its history with its 14th Century Church  and Priests' Cottages, alongside the historic Feoffee trust owned cottages and park. Numerous properties around the village show how villagers lived and worked and demonstrate how the village has developed.

Modern housing, such as Carrollsland and Canes Orchard has shaped the current character of the parish and the community as demand for homes has grown over the years.
