About

The Battery Gardens has one of the most panoramic views in the Bay and is a great location to watch the annual English Riviera Airshow. The gardens are a natural landscape of trees and grass, and in spring it becomes a sea of bluebells and snowdrops. In Autumn, the ground turns orange with a covering of crisp autumn leaves. With footpaths throughout the park, it is a great place to walk in all seasons.

The Battery Gardens are so named as this area was once a World War II Battery point and the now protected land is of significant historical and archaeological value. Along your walk you will see many shelters used by the Brixham Home Guard during WWII. The Battery Gardens is also host to the Brixham Battery Museum, an educational centre run by volunteers, for the general public to learn about the history of the site.

Start your walk at the top of the gardens on Northfields Lane and follow the network of paths to wander down towards the sea, leading to Fishcombe Cove – a sheltered pebble beach, popular with wild swimmers. The cove is surrounded by tall cliffs and wooded hillsides and is a great escape from the crowds of Brixham town. Stop at the Fishcombe Cove Café to stop for lunch or pick up a takeaway coffee for your journey.  

Continue following the paths to the east to open out onto a large seafront green with stunning sea views and a series of benches to rest your feet and take in the view. Follow the footpath through to a tree lined track which runs alongside the cliff edge to a set of stairs. From the stairs, follow the footpath along the calm seafront which will take you alongside the busy Brixham Fish Market and finish in Brixham Harbour where you can enjoy some of the freshest seafood in the heart England’s Seafood Coast. Try a light lunch at Simply Fish or Rockfish who both serve some of the freshest local fish and shellfish in the area.

Although the majority of emplacements that exist within Brixham battery grounds today are WW2 era, the nineteenth century stone altitude marker and iron cannon racers still remain.
