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.
