“It is not the going out of port, but the coming in, that determines the success of a voyage.”

[Henry Ward Beecher]

The foundation stone for Brixham Breakwater was laid in 1843. [The "intended breakwater" is shown on the 1781 chart]. After 1400 feet had been built to the Rendel's designs all work stopped for lack of funds.

The partially completed breakwater suffered damage in the 1866 and other storms. In 1909 a 600 feet additional section was started with government help; then, in 1912, a further 1,000 feet was begun. This was the final part and, although World War 1 was being fought at the time, it was completed in 1916.
