Leek is an historic market town in Staffordshire on the banks of the River Churnet, and serves as the administrative centre for the Staffordshire Moorlands District Council. Over 20,000 people call it home, or the Queen of the Staffordshire Moorlands, as the locals affectionately call it.
Leek boasts a bustling local economy with its traditional and unconventional shops, antique and collectors markets, and well-loved tea shops. The town was once a major producer of textiles. Fine Victorian architecture still stands in the area, with cobblestone roads covering the market square to accentuate its historical ambience. The surrounding countryside also gives Leek a natural beauty that attracts travellers from across the globe.
