The St Paul's Nativity play attracted many people into the church on Sunday 23rd December 2018 and, among them, was a large proportion of children. Angela Bellamy was not short, therefore, of actors for the play which she directed without having had a rehearsal. She did a commendable job, though, and was able to use the many willing helpers at her disposal to retell the story of Jesus' birth. In the picture, members of the "cast" gather around Joseph and Mary (centre) for a photocall. The angels are at the back with shepherds and sheep joining in!

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.

Clarity Mental Health - thank you from John & Janette

John and Janette Stitt as well as Emma and Michelle, would like to say a massive thank you to all of their customers (of Lyncroft Stores) for their support in this year's fancy dress days and Christmas draw.

They say, "Together you raised the grand total of £1603.54 for Clarity. As you know, Clarity is a local charity helping people with mental health and/or emotional issues.

The customers of Lyncroft have always been very generous in their charitable donations and, even when times are hard or tight, they come through. It is with heartfelt gratitude that we and Clarity thank you for this record-breaking sum."

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.
