Welcome to the official website for Brixton Devon

Brixton Parish offers the opportunity to embrace village and rural life: a sense of community, tranquillity, a safe environment with public green spaces and beautiful landscapes benefitting from a wide range of local facilities.   Our community benefits from both the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the close proximity to the historic port city of Plymouth.

The parish of Brixton has a long history which can be traced back to the Domesday Book. The local economy was traditionally 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.

Modern housing, such as Carrollsland (to the south west) and Canes Orchard in Brixton Village, has shaped the current character of the parish and the community, as demand for homes has grown over the years.  Construction started of the new town of Sherford in 2016, much of which is currently within the Brixton Parish boundary.
