BRIXHAM

SX9256SE OVERGANG ROAD, Lower Brixham
1946-1/11/197 (South West side)
Retaining wall to path fronting
Custom House, Nos.11-17 Overgang,
Kelvin Court

GV II

Retaining wall. Probably at least early C19. Roughly-coursed
Devonian limestone rubble with the natural bedrock projecting
in places at the bottom; buttressed in 3 places. Chamfered
coping of limestone and other stones, with some red brick;
alongside the steps leading up from The Quay the coping is not
chamfered, and opposite No.14 Overgang (qv) the top of the
wall has been replaced by an iron railing having at each end a
square pier with pyramidal cap. The wall, together with the
Overgang houses behind it, is an important part of the
townscape, especially when seen from the other side of the
harbour.
