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.

Millennium Green News

    27th Apr 2021

    Special birthday!

    Saturday September 4th 2021 (2 p.m – 4.30 p.m.)

    Let’s join together to show how much we have appreciated the Millennium Green during this time of pandemic lockdowns.

    The News is that the Green is celebrating its 21st birthday. It was a Millennium project; the mazzard trees were planted in December 1999, and the rest of the Green was opened officially in Summer 2000. This celebration wishes to welcome the planters of the mazzard trees (some of whom were children at the School) to join us and see the outcome of their efforts twenty-one years on.

    This free family event will allow villagers to join in to enjoy a day of celebration to learn more about the Millennium Green, it’s upkeep and plans for the future.  There will be stalls, refreshments, events including a Birds of Prey flying display and children’s games/quizzes related to the Green’s Birds, Mazzards and Traditional Wildflower Meadow.

    Join us for a village get together and meet new people who also enjoy this fantastic local facility.

News Blogs

We do not have any new News Blogs at present, but ...

Landkey Parish Council encourages village residents to make use of the facilities that are available to all on this website. If there is an issue that concerns village life that you feel needs to be addressed, place it on the "Your Point of View" page and it will be sent to a parish councillor who will reply, if you ask for a response.

You might also like to add an item of news to the News Blog page or to upload an image. If, so, simply contact the web administrator on the email address below and ask for a login facility.

The Parish Council also welcomes the addition of village events to the "Events Calendar". The calendar is shared with St Paul's Church (as church events are also village events) and it would be good to have more events listed from the village in general. If you have an event that you would like to place, feel free to enter it on the "Add Event" page.

If you would like to submit events, blogs or Points of View regularly, you might prefer to obtain a login facility as this will enable you to subsequently edit your data if required or to add from a stored template to save time. To obtain a login facility, contact Charles at cerwaldron@gmail.com.

Points of View

From David Netherway on 22nd March 2021:

Hi

I have been walking to Landkey from Swimbridge on Sunday mornings to collect newspapers from the Stores. I have been in the habit of collecting litter which was getting better I thought...I am sure others are doing the same....but was overwhelmed by the  sight of a huge pile of discarded black bin liners of household rubbish yesterday on the lane leading towards Venn Quarry...Grid Reference about 590306 (in case you think I was lost I leave early and  take varied routes to reach Landkey by 9.00am shop opening time). I am afraid the pile was beyond my carrier bag capacity.

Why do people do this !!!??? 

David

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.
