The Story of Bishopsteignton

Our aim is to tell the “Story of Bishopsteignton”, its history, geology and geography, its people, businesses, homes and gardens through a mixture of digital and physical artefacts, events and information. To this end we will consider the village itself as the “museum” with the Heritage Centre at its heart.

Bishopsteignton Heritage provides a unique facility which interprets the story of the Bishopsteignton area through its heritage and enables the local community and others to become involved in enjoyable learning opportunities by sharing experiences, including digital and physical artefacts, events and information.

Become a researcher

The content on this website is entirely produced by volunteer researchers who have investigated the aspects of Bishopsteignton life, past and present, that most interests them.

We are always keen to hear from anyone who would like to join our happy band of researchers. Through collaboration many people have discovered information about their homes, families and environment which constantly engenders more exciting knowledge and new avenues of enquiry.

If you would like to be part of this fascinating project, please do get in touch. Come to one of our regular meetings or click here.
