The St Paul's Church fair on 30th June 2018 was a very enjoyable occasion. Held at the Old Manor, Landkey, various attractions had been organised, including "Soak the Vicar"! With temperatures approaching 30C, Revd Shaun O'Rourke (in the picture), felt that it was no hardship being doused with cool water! Image courtesy of Charles Waldron 2nd July 2018.

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.

Points of View

From Michelle Hunt on 4th July 2018:

Hi. I just wanted to enquire as to whether there is anything that can be done about the speeding traffic that is a frequent occurrence on the main road and some of the smaller roads too.

I take my children out for a walk around the village daily and it is become less and less enjoyable due to the speed that people drive around here. 

I wondered,if I organised a petition to get some speed bumps or camera set up to send to Devon county council do you think this would have any effect or has it already been requested before with now success.

its such a shame our peaceful village is becoming a racetrack, I would love to have a peaceful walk without having to pull my kids in every few minutes in fear of the cars being out of control and so close to us on the pavements.

many thanks for your time, I look forward to your views on this 

regards

 

Richard Prowse (Parish Councillor) sent this reply on 4th July 2018:
Thank you for raising this - I know it is something everyone is concerned about. The Parish Council has asked DCC Highways to mend the speed sign at the top of Blakeshill Road and has also asked for another at the Newlands end of the village. We were told that there is no budget for this, and DCC do not seem to be concerned. They have agreed to join us in requesting another police speed check in the village so we hope that may happen soon. However, last time they did this (admittedly, a couple of years ago) the police reported that very few vehicles were actually speeding. 30 MPH however feels fast in the tighter corners of Landkey! Many thanks for raising this - I will raise it again at this evening's Parish Council (Wednesday 4th)

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.

Landkey's Millennium Green, opened in June 2000, is appreciated daily by local residents who make use of this valuable amenity. At the time, it was one of just 250 Greens created nationwide as part of the government's plans to mark the millennium.
