Bishopsteignton is a village in South Devon, England between Newton Abbot and Teignmouth, close to the Teign Estuary. The village is on a steep hill, and has a post office, small pharmacy and a small, family-run village shop. The village school has about 150 pupils. The electoral ward had a population of 2,570 at the 2011 census.The village has three churches - one gospel hall (Plymouth Brethren), one Methodist and one Anglican - St John The Baptist, with a fine Norman doorway which survived Victorian restoration. Among the tombstones are some who were victims of plague, and above the churchyard are the remains of a 14th-century sanctuary chapel built by John Grandisson, Bishop of Exeter to provide a refuge for felons who had accepted life banishment, as they travelled from Exeter to sail from Teignmouth.The village has four pubs: The Old Workshop, The Ring of Bells, The Cockhaven Manor and the Bishop John De Grandisson. It also has a local brewery called Red Rock based behind the Old Workshop pub, the Old Walls vineyard and Shute Fruit and Produce, a pick your own field.There is a small beach on the estuary, known locally as Down Steps, The River Beach or Red Rock. It is reached via a footpath from the village that crosses the main Teignmouth to Newton Abbot road and the railway, and goes down the steep Luxton Steps. This ancient footpath leads to the point where villagers could ford the river at low tide to reach Coombe Cellars.
