The Remembrance service and wreath-laying ceremony on Sunday 11th November 2018 were attended by many, possibly over 100, Landkey residents. The service and ceremony were both led by Chris James, clergy member of St Paul's Church, who was supported by many others associated with St Paul's Church and village organisations. Here, Chris (left) pauses before the Act of Remembrance began just before 11am, exactly 100 years after the signing of the Armistice in France in 1918. He is joined by John Hayes (Standard Bearer for the Burma Star Association), Lieutenant Tom Wilks and Colour Sergeant David Green, both of whom were about to lay wreaths.

Welcome to the website for Landkey, a peaceful village located within the rolling green hills of North Devon, England.

Landkey is characterised by a sense of community among its residents, especially among those who have dwelt here for many years and who have an intimate knowledge of the history and culture of the village. Landkey has welcomed many new residents in recent years as successive house-building projects have been completed and it is hoped that initiatives such as the establishment of this website will help to strengthen this sense of community by making available to all residents information about their village in a readily-accessible format.

The Landkey Sculpture. Created by local artist Polly Pocock, this distinctive artwork stands at the entrance to the northern side of village and is made up of local stone from nearby Venn Quarry and is in the shape of the Landkey parish boundary. The sculpture was commissioned by Landkey Parish Council and was inspired following a consultation with local people to seek ideas on what Landkey meant to them. It was unveiled on July 25th 2009.
