At least 80 Landkey residents attended the Act of Remembrance at the war memorial on 12th November 2017 at 11am. Earlier, from 10 am, almost all the seats in the village hall were taken for the Service of Remembrance at which as many as 50 people were present.

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.

From Charles Waldron on 12th November 2017:Subject: Landkey remembers

There was scarcely a seat to spare in Landkey village hall on 12th November 2017 as local residents came together to pay their respects to those in the armed forces who have been killed or wounded while defending our nation.

In a break with tradition, the 2017 Remembrance service was held in Landkey village hall, rather than in the church as has been the custom in previous years. This change was made to avoid the necessity of making the long walk up the from church to the war memorial after the service. Local residents seemed to feel that this was a helpful alteration.

The service was led by Chris James, who forms part of the clergy team which serves the group of churches which includes St Paul's, and his sermon included readings of poems by local poet, David Prowse. There was a feeling of enthusiasm for the occasion among those gathered and this was expressed in the volume of the hymn singing, which could surely have been heard from outside the hall!

More village residents joined those making the short walk up from the hall for the Act of Remembrance after the service, swelling the number of those wishing to pay their respects to at least 80. A wreath was laid on behalf of Landkey Parish Council by children, Izzy and Sam, pupils from Landkey Primary School. A wreath was also laid on behalf of St Paul's Church while individuals also laid crosses.

From Michael Gee on 30th October 2017:

Local residents might like to know that an evening of carol singing has been organised to be held at Landkey Primary School on Friday 26th November 2017 at 7:30 pm.

Carol singing in Landkey was once a regular feature of Landkey village life but has fallen out of fashion in recent times. Led by Wren Music, this event aims to re-introduce this traditional seasonal activity and all from our local communities, including Swimbridge and Newport as well as Landkey, are welcome to come along and enjoy this festive occasion.

A poster for the occasion can be viewed on this link:

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.
