This is named after the last sailing trawler to be built, in 1926, by Uphams. The Vigilance has since been restored and is once again moored at Brixham. Fishing and Brixham have gone hand in hand for centuries, the industry being a major source of local work. In fact, until World War I, it was possible to walk right across the harbour, stepping from ship to ship, so closely were they moored. Today, the fishing industry remains an important part of the local scene.
