Strawberry bends, near Brixham On the slightly downhill approach to Brixham, the road curves right and then left. Here the picture shows the approach to the right hand bend. To locals, this is known as 'Strawberry Bends', as strawberries were once sold at this point in the summer. To my knowledge this has not occurred during the last 30 years.
This has also been an accident blackspot, usually caused by speeding. The road was narrowed some time ago to try to make it safer.
