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 12th February 2018:

New Bishop of London to lead Easter service at St Paul's!

On Easter Sunday, 1st April, The Rt Revd Dame Sarah Mullally will lead the service at St Paul's church.

Currently Bishop of Crediton, Dame Sarah has been chosen as the new Bishop of London, the highest position to be held by a woman within the church of England. She had agreed to lead the St Paul’s service, which will include a rededication of the refurbished organ, prior to her appointment and we are grateful to her for keeping this engagement. All will be welcome.

More information on this event will follow.

Points of View

From Jon Williams on 5th January 2018:

It is lovely to see that as part of the new development children of Landkey will have a new Basket Ball court. However as a parent I would be interested to know, is the Parish Council in a position to look into the fact that walking from Landkey to Newport has no pathway and is not light up or does not have a cycle lane.

The school Bus to Park School stopped a while ago now as the council deem it safe for our children to walk to school.

During the winter time especially I do not know of any parent that thinks this route is safe.

This would be a real benefit to our village and to the safety of our children, my fear is that it will only get addressed after a fatality.

Richard Prowse (Parish Councillor) sent this reply on 5th January 2018:
Yes the hard surface play area will be great for older children. You are quite right to draw attention to the lack of a safe route into town. The Parish Council supported the parents who appealed to the County Council when the school bus was withdrawn and made their own submission. Sadly, the DCC councillors felt that Venn Road was a safe route to Park School! The development at Portmore includes a cycle/walkway but that still leaves quite a long section into Landkey itself. The Parish Council is on record several times calling for the Highway Authority to complete the route - perhaps along the border of the golf park - towards the village. We will keep making this case.

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.
