The Lion

The door way to the old police station in Leek, is it just me or does the shield over the door look like a grumpy Lion?

The Talbot, Leek

Over looking the Roundabout, the Talbot has seen better days, a wonderful building right in the heart of the town, left to rot.

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).
