Some where

A proper toy shop, just like the ones i loved as a child, this one is a relative new comer to Leek, all the ones i loved have long gone. Can you see the black stone in the right hand corner, laid by Stanley Howard Burton in 1934 it marks the corner of one of those hidden gems on the high street, so hidden i've only just noticed it and will have to get a shot of the whole building to tell it's story.

Grand designs

A terrace house in Leek, not all of them are as grand as this.

Well here are a number of first. The first time I posted a picture of myself (see my other blog), the first time my bandwidth runs out and the first time I’m let down by my photo hosting site. It just so happens that they all occur while I’m on holiday and unable to do anything about them. Add to that list, the first time I post without a picture, just so I can let you know that I am working to resume normal service as quickly as possible.

Kilns 2

The old kilns at the foot of kiln lane, this is a great example of how to turn a desert into a garden, see this post from before.

Naylor yard, Leek

One of the hidden gems of the town, just off the top of mill street.

Disused building at the top of mill street, Leek. I have no idea what the building was, but what ever it was used for needed 2 doors.

The Tool box

I think that by the time they have got all the stock out on the pavement it must be time to start getting it back in again.

Pat woods

The Leek home for strays, charity shop, but known to most as Pat wood's after the founder and driving force of the charity. For as long as i can remember we used to get our family cats from her, i really cannot imagine just how many cats she has re homed over the years.

The Butter market Leek

Just behind the market place you get this view of the back of the Red lion pub and the clock that is on top of the Butter market entrance.
A big welcome to one of the latest city daily photo blogs, Gothenburg Daily Photo, run by an old blogging friend and fellow Nikon user Isunia.

Bookends 2

Facing the old Woolies at the other end of Leek's historic market place is the old building that i know as the Foxlow, after the club that used to be based there. Both this and yesterdays buildings were private homes to Leek's most prominent citizen in Victorian times. Both are now at there lowest ebb and both looking to a brighter future.

Bookends 1

That's the wonder of Wooliers, as the slogan used to go, now this sight is an all to common one in towns all over the country. But it also signals the start of something new, so as they say watch this space.
