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.

Link Road Upgrade News

Improvement work on the North Devon Link is now proceeding and will eventually lead to better road connections. While the work is under way, though, it will mean some inconvenience for motorists. This will largely involve a reduced speed limit through the roadworks and occasional diversions through Landkey to accommodate abnormal loads. Details are given in these documents:

Landkey - Shaping Our Future

Landkey Parish Council has embarked on a period of public consultation on the issues of most relevance to our parish. These issues are outlined in the document 'Landkey - Shaping Our Future' which is available to read or download on the link below.

We invite Landkey residents to then take part in our online survey (accessible via the link below) to express their views on these issues. This information will be gratefully received and will help us to shape policies for our local community.

Our Creight's Stores?

A local resident with a knack for a good turn of phrase has suggested that the shop which Creighton Kirk and his family have opened in The Castle Inn should be called "Our Creight's Stores"!

The Castle may not have a till like Arkwright's and not be (quite) "Open All Hours" but Creighton is now selling daily newspapers from 8am and accepts payment by vouchers in the same way that Janette did at Lyncroft Stores. There is also a small range of essential items available for sale.

Creighton, his wife Sharon and daughter Madison are doing the village a commendable service in taking on some of the functions of the shop and I, probably like many others, wish them every success.

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.

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.
