Statue of William of Orange with a potted history of his landing at Brixham. Very interesting. Worth stopping to admire on your way round the harbour.

The statue is situated in the middle of Brixham Harbour. Tells the story of William of Orange attempt to take the throne of England from Charles II. Take time to read the information, it is interesting.
