Each year, the emergence of blossom on the Millennium Green mazzard trees is awaited with interest by people who wish to visit and see this picturesque sight which is associated with the arrival of spring. Michael Gee, who was part of the group which planted the mazzards in Landkey in 1999, gives this update here on the state of the blossom on the Green: "The cherries may have blossomed in Tokyo, but the mazzards in Landkey are keeping us in suspense. The buds are starting to swell, and warm day and night temperatures over the next week should bring them on quickly. It is quite usual to have some blossom for St George’s Day (Monday 23rd) but I think we’ll be kept waiting longer this year. I’ll make another report next week [w/c 23rd April]."

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.

Website change, January 2018:
If you are a regular visitor to this site, you will notice some changes have been made to its design. In order to accommodate the increasing use of mobile phones for accessing the internet, this site now adapts itself to the size of screen through which it is being viewed. In addition, contemporary styling has been incorporated, with the intention giving the site a more modern feel. More efficient programming has been built into some features, such as the Events Calendar (not visible in mobile view) which operates more quickly than it did before. If you encounter any problems, please let me know. CW, 17th January 2018. [To close this box: hover / tap above info symbol.]

From Charles Waldron on 2nd April 2018:

Bishop Sarah's visit

St Paul's Church was delighted to welcome the Rt Revd Dame Sarah Mullally to lead its Easter service on Sunday 1st April.

This was a visit which had been arranged many months before to mark the re-installation of the organ which had been restored following a successful fundraising campaign.

Dame Sarah was, until very recently, Bishop of Crediton, but was elected in December 2017 to the post of Bishop of London, the highest position ever to be held by a woman in the Church of England. This engagement at St Paul's was one of her last before she moved to take up her post in London.

Many people joined the regular congregation for this occasion, helping to fill most of the pews in the church. In her sermon, Dame Sarah focused on the wonder of the Resurrection, explaining that the hope that it offered was available to all. Referring to the stone which had been inexplicably rolled away from Jesus' tomb, she related from personal experience just how difficult large stones are to move. Her husband (who was among the congregation), having purchased an ornamental stone for the garden, discovered on its delivery to their driveway, that it was far too heavy to be moved into the garden by anything other than a mechanical hoist, much to the intrigue of neighbours who witnessed grown men struggling with it in vain!

She also went on to liken the promise of the Resurrection to the passages in C S Lewis' "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" in which the permanent winter is finally broken after Aslan's return.

The usual Easter Sunday liturgy was paused after Dame Sarah's sermon in order to allow her to rededicate the organ. She offered a prayer that it would be used to enhance the worship at St Paul's.

Dame Sarah was warmly thanked by churchwarden, Eileen MacCaig, for having taking the service and also congratulated her on being appointed to her new position. As she was presented with flowers and a gift from the restorer (a mug depicting organ restoration work), the congregation erupted into a heartfelt round of applause. She and her husband stayed for a while afterwards and enjoyed refreshments, which included hot cross buns.

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.
