Leek History Tour

Availability: In stock

Author: Neil Collingwood

Leek is the main town of the Staffordshire Moorlands and the most important centre on the south-western edge of the Peak District. It stands on a hill in a large bend in the River Churnet and is locally known as ‘the Queen of the Moorlands’. In the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the town expanded as it became a centre of silk weaving, with several large mills being built, but the industry no longer survives.

In Leek History Tour, local author Neil Collingwood guides readers through the streets of the town and shows how it has changed across the decades. This pocket-sized illustrated guide offers fascinating glimpses of the changing face of the town and the way of life for past generations. With the help of a handy location map, readers can explore the streets, buildings and landmarks for themselves, as well as discovering hidden aspects of Leek’s heritage.
