Best Bishopsteignton Walks

1 hour walks

This charming town with many Georgian buildings inspired by John Nash , enjoys three pubs, one named after Bishop John de Grandisson.

He built a 14th century sanctuary chapel to provide a refuge for felons who had accepted life banishment, as they travelled from Exeter to sail from Teignmouth.
The remains of this chapel are still visible near the village church
