The Roundabout, Leek

The roundabout at the bottom of Derby street Leek, a hot topic in the town at the moment due to plans for a new road lay out that would see the end of this, one of the towns major landmarks. There is a public vote on the 06/01 to decide if the plans get the go ahead.

I would love to see the roundabout stay, it is a unique feature in a town that is getting over run by chain stores and letting its old buildings decay in to ruin (see Saturdays post 08/01).


  1. There will be a few broken hips down this street if we’re not careful!

    Lovely scene.

  2. Totally agree.Supermarkets are a blot on our beautiful landscape,and the blots getting bigger.I say LEAVE LEEK ALONE.Btw,as a former pro photographer,I love talking photography.Your lovely scene of leek above;did you use Topaz Adjust?

  3. Hi David, thank you for your comment, as to the processing it was done using CS4, Lightroom and Photomatix.
