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 13th November 2019:

Remembrance

Residents of Landkey turned out in large numbers for Remembrance Sunday, 10th November 2019.

The service took place at 10:00 am in Landkey village hall and was led by Chris James. In his sermon, Chris reminded the gathered church members and village residents of the awful losses of human life during the D-Day landings. He drew inspiration from the work of West Country poet, David Prowse whose poem, "Normandy", evoking the emotions of that time, was especially poignant.

The 40 or so people who met in the village hall were joined by many more at the war memorial, swelling numbers to as many as 100 to observe the Act of Remembrance. Wreaths were laid by Bill Parker on behalf of Landkey Parish Council and by Tom Wilks on behalf of St Paul's Church.

This year, the war memorial was draped with a garland of 365 knitted poppies, one for each day since the last Remembrance Day. The industrious knitters were revealed to be Karen Trigger, Sue Ackland, Anita Thorne and Liz Davis. Their work received a round of applause!

Points of View

From Toby Roberts on 24th November 2019:

The minutes from the 6th nov meeting are not up on the website yet. When will they be available?

does anyone know what the position of the 40 limit traffic calming sign will be on the road from Swimbridge?  I am checking and hoping that it will not interfere with the view from Newland House. 

Is there a meeting in December, what date?

very best,

Toby Roberts, Newland House

 

Richard Halliday (Chairman, Parish Council) sent this reply on 25th November 2019:
Thank you for getting in touch. The minutes from 6th November (most likely a draft, pending approval at the next meeting) will be posted within 1 month of the meeting as is required. Any decision regarding new road signs rests with Devon County Highways and to our knowledge they have not confirmed any plan for location. If you would like to attend our next Parish Council meeting on Wednesday 4th December at 7pm we would be pleased to hear your concerns.

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.
