The Pilgrim of Brixham Volunteers – Brixham, Devon

The Pilgrim of Brixham volunteers are a group seen as the guardians of a historic vessel, keeping it afloat for future generations to enjoy.  Using traditional techniques and skills, they strive to preserve and maintain the 125-year-old fishing trawler in operational condition.  Offering hospitality and a sailing experience to all visitors, they have fostered a deeper appreciation for maritime history amongst the public and instilled a sense of pride in the local community.
