Leek is an historic market town situated north east of Stoke on Trent and in close proximity to the Peak District. This is a town that enjoys a party with more events held annually than anywhere else in the Staffordshire Moorlands. Leek is also an accredited ‘Fair Trade Town’ with a great mix of independent and national shops. These are complemented by thriving weekly indoor and outdoor markets on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The very popular Totally Locally Leek market is also held on the first Sunday of each month, selling a range of crafts, gifts and a variety of farm produce. See: https://totallylocally.org/leek
Leek Town Council is responsible for the Nicholson War Memorial and free guided tours take place on the first Sunday (1.00pm to 3.00pm) and third Saturday (11.00am to 1.00pm) of each month during April to September. The tours last thirty minutes and there is no need to book ahead, just contact a Volunteer Guide at the war memorial on the day. If a school or community group would like a specially arranged tour, please contact the Town Clerk.
Known locally as the “Queen of The Moorlands”, the busy market town of Leek has a population of 20,000 and is situated in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands.
