This image comes from a scan of a calendar page contributed by visitors to Landkey (on 10th August 2017) who had recently purchased a house in South Devon. On exploring their loft, they came across a calendar for 1964 and discovered this scene of St Paul's Church and Landkey Town bridge for July-August of that year. The house below the church, which is visible in the picture, was occupied by Mr and Mrs Mills with their daughters. Mr Mills was the Church Warden for many years and they left Landkey to live in Plymouth. Their house was demolished in 1964. We are grateful to the visitors for letting us have this picture and for Betty Parker for submitting it to be included on the village website.

About Landkey

Our Village

With a population of approximately 2000, Landkey is primarily a residential village from where many residents travel daily to work in Barnstaple and its surrounding areas.

The village does, though, support a number of businesses including the Post Office, Nearbuy convenience shop, the Castle Pub and Ladybirds Day Nursery all located in the main street, Blakeshill Road.

Landkey Primary School has 168 pupils recorded on its roll and was rated "Outstanding" by Ofsted at its 2011 inspection. It is located in Bakery Way, just off Manor Road at the western end of the village.

A little further along Manor Road, St Paul's Church may be found where Anglican services are held almost every Sunday. Its congregation of around 40 is friendly and welcomes anyone who would like to join them for worship.

Our village hall is available for hire and is situated close to the free car park off Blakeshill Road. Fuller details are given on our Village Hall pages.

A full-size level football pitch is located on the Millennium Green together with changing facilities. An additional football field is located between the Green and Tanners Road where a children's play area is also situated.
