Brixton Devon
St Mary's Church, Brixton, Devon


Besides the Church, records of which go back many centuries, there have always been landowners of repute and some renown in the Parish of Brixton.

In 1835, for example, Henry Collins-Splatt commissioned George Wightwick to add to the much earlier Brixton House. Spriddlestone House sports several Georgian features, whilst at West Sherford the former Manor House was granted to Sir Francis Drake after his round the world voyage.
