The Bishop's Palace at Exeter (while originating presumably with the
Norman cathedral in the 12th century) is mostly of 1848, by E
Christian. The only medieval parts showing are the masonry of the
hall, north and east walls and screen, the Chapel of St. Faith (in the north east side of the part of the palace nearer to the cathedral; alternatively and less accurately given as dedicated to St. Mary (4)) which was dedicated between 1224 and 1244, the early 13th century entrance arch in the south east tower, the 15th century Tower porch and the tower itself, and a re-used oriel window of 1500. The unique entry passage directly into the cathedral was originally early 16th century. (2-5)
