We are keen to make a permanent record of Bishopsteignton's various reactions to the present Corona Virus situation as part of our village's collective heritage. Every day we will publish a new page including the most recent Government announcements and invite you to comment on how you feel and what you have been up to as a result. Please let us know here.
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.
You are most welcome to visit and view the archive at the Community Centre between 10am and 2pm Tuesdays and Fridays or by appointment.
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.
