The Summer Palace for the Bishops of Exeter was built at Bishopsteignton during the 13th century, taking its water supply from White Well, on Haldon. Bishop Bronescombe is credited with building the palace and often resided there in the later years of his bishopric, 1258-80. Bishop Grandisson (1327-69) later rebuilt the palace. It was used as a refuge during the Black Plague. Bishop Veysey (1509-49) was the last bishop to reside there. It was disbanded in 1549. Edward VI granted the palace, with the adjacent Manors to Sir Andrew Dudley, later executed for his role in Lady Jane Grey's claim to the throne.
