St Edward Street, Leek part 3

I'm going to take you on a walk up St Edward street in Leek, in reality the walk will only take 5 mins, but here i'll spread it over 8 days, day 3.

We have at last set foot on the street, and opposite us is the Quiet Woman, yet another pub, the story goes that the woman in question was a serving girl who over heard a secret and to shut her up they cut off her head. The biggest surprise is inside, the old yard has been roofed over giveing the place a most fantastic space.
