This is the right-hand, north part of a panorama of the Brimley valley. On the floor of the valley left of centre is Lower Brimley Close and to the right are properties in Brimley Drive. On the valley side above, on the left, are villas in Higher Brimley. To their right is the long polychrome brick terrace called Higher Brimley Terrace. On the skyline are the nameless heights above the Exeter Road; new housing developments encircle the summit.

The other two parts of this panorama are SX9473 : Across the valley from Barnpark Road, 1/3 and SX9473 : Across the valley from Barnpark Road: 2/3
Brimley valley, Teignmouth
The culverted watercourse in the valley is now known as the Brimley Brook. In centuries past it was the valley of "a rivulet", the Tame, that drained Holcombe Down and was joined by other streams to fill its own estuary that met the Teign where the back beach is. The Tame and a tidal marsh separated the settlements of East and West Teignmouth. Teignmouth's modern development began at the end of the seventeenth century after the ruin of the town by the French fleet in 1690. Over time the marsh was drained and the Tame tamed by culverting. The Brimley valley is today almost entirely developed as a pleasant residential district.
