Brighton

Brighton is a town in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador and has a population of approximately 200 people.

Located at the end of the Beothuk Trail lies the peaceful, yet energetic community of Brighton. A horseshoe-shaped, well-protected harbour attracted early settlers to this secluded island locale. The small fishing community is situated on the south shore of Green Bay. Originally called Dark Tickle, the settlement is located on two islands - Cobbler's Island and Brighton Island (which are connected by causeway).

About 2000 years ago, the Palaeo-Eskimo and the Dorset Eskimo were the first settlers on the island of Brighton. When the town was settled by the English in the 1800's, the island provided them with close access to the open water and a harbour inlet for shelter.
