'Pilgrim at Brixham'

​I'm lucky enough to live close to the sea, which means coastal scenes and boats are frequent subjects for me. I often visit Brixham, a small fishing town at the south of the bay. This is 'Pilgrim', a beautifully restored 1895 gaff-rigged sailing trawler. Built by JW and A Uphams, one of Brixham's most famous yards. At the time she was built, there were an estimated 300 similar vessels in the port. Now there are only a handful, but their red sails are a familiar sight in the bay.
