Primary School Heritage Trail 2021

How much do you know about your village?

The below was assembled by Year 5 and 6 children from Bishopsteignton Primary School after a heritage trail was devised for them as part of the Village Festival September 2021.  Armed with the questionnaire, the children, teachers and volunteers from BIshopsteignton  Heritage showed real engagement and resilience (in the pouring rain!) as their eyes were opened to the history on their doorstep.

The accompanying quiz can be seen here.
Why not have a go yourselves?

Village Festival and Carnivals

The next village festival will take place in 2022 with fundraising events planned for 2021 if circumstances allow. Before our present biennial festival the residents of Bishopsteignton put on some amazing carnivals over many years and there is a lot of photographic evidence in the archive and in villagers’ photo collections.

We are hoping that residents with memories or photos of the past carnival processions will be tempted to join in this project and help us tell the story of this great village tradition. If you have had any involvement with the festivals or the carnivals, please do join us in our attempt to bring these occasions alive again on the website.
