Old Maps of Brixham

Historic Maps of Brixham and the local area.

We have purchased Harbour Sails, Overgang. In the picture you can see that once upon a time there was rather large house sitting in front,which is no longer there, (where the boats are in corner of quay, there’s 2 masts that point to the old house). What happened to it?

Used to holiday at this caravan park in the first half of the 1970s. It was pretty basic compared to the Pontins camp just over the hedge. They had a pool, tennis courts etc. We only had a toilet and shower block and a very basic club house that sold a few drinks. Can anyone remember it? Would be lovely to know what happened to it - was it swallowed up by Pontins - before Pontins burnt down and is now a housing estate I gather with "Sharkham" in it's name.
