- Brigham Harbor is a large coastal marine breakwater structure which is positioned in the town of Brixham in Devon in England. It reaches out half a mile offshore. It's exciting to walk along its entire length. Right at the end you see the whole harbor and town, an amazing view to see in person. The breakwater provides shelter for vessels mooring at the port, including the historic Brigham fishing fleet. The building of the structure to its final length spanned several decades, with work beginning in 1843 to the design of the local civil engineer James Meadows Rendel and being completed in 1916, when the present cast-iron lighthouse was installed at the pier end. Brigham Breakwater is also a fantastic place to catch fish.
