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.

From Charles Waldron on 1st May 2017:Subject: Claude Adams

Many local people will be sad to hear of the death of Claude Adams on 24th April 2017. Claude lived in Landkey for much of his life and worshipped at St Paul’s, if only occasionally in recent years. He was 91 years old and had been married to his wife, Joyce, for around 63 years.

Over many years he routinely carried out jobs for St Paul’s and these included cutting the grass on the garden below the church and mending walls. He was also remembered for having repaired the bench seat below the wall in the church garden which is still there, although in need of mending again.

He took part in village activities and was an active member of Landkey Horticultural Society. He was very competitive and took pride in entering produce at the annual Landkey Show where he won many cups and rosettes.

He took as much pride in his own garden and also in his house which he would paint by himself even during his advancing years. Just two years ago, at the age of 89, he took it upon himself to repair the chimney on his house.

Modern cars were not for Claude and he could be seen regularly driving himself and Joyce to town in his 1960s Morris Minor 1000 Traveller which he kept in perfect running order. It is rumoured that he used to drive his Morris onto the Continent, even as far as Switzerland!

He leaves a son and also grandchildren.

The funeral will be held in St Paul's Church on 12th May at 12 noon.

We are grateful to Joyce for allowing this brief account of Claude’s life to be printed.

From Charles Waldron on 9th February 2017:Subject: Contributions to this website are welcome!

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
