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 Birdboxes

Years ago it might have been Landkey’s practice to shoot the thrushes and blackbirds which were feasting on the mazzard crop, but now we’re friendlier.

There are birdboxes on the Millennium Green which have been used by our feathered friends, but many of them need repairing or replacing. Are there any bird lovers in the village who could give us a hand? Indeed, we’d love advice on different sizes to try and where to put them.

If Covid rules allow, we may have an event during the third week in February, (RSPB’s Nest Box Week). It’s all part of our plan to make the Green more wildlife friendly.

Please e-mail Michael Gee if you can help in any way.

News Blogs

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 Mark Stowell on 28th February 2021:

I would like to bring to the parish the ever increasing issue of dog owners letting their dogs foul around the village and not removing it .

it is very apparent that this is increasing and that it will become a health issue let alone is a disgusting issue .

additionally the poor bin located at the top of the new development located on birch road isn’t adequate and often is over full .

 

Richard Halliday (Chairman, Parish Council) sent this reply on 8th March 2021:
The Parish Council and the Millennium Green Trust have funded the installation and servicing of several dog poo bins in Landkey and I agree there is no excuse for this issue. Your comments regarding the Birch Road bin have been noted. Thanks

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.
