Where is Leek?

Leek is the principal town of the Staffordshire Moorlands and is locally known as ‘The Queen of the Moorlands’.

The town is situated at the foot of the Peak District National Park and is therefore often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Peak District’. Most of the town is at or above 600 feet (180 m) and is surrounded by the even higher countryside of the Staffordshire Moorlands which is situated on the southern uplands of the Pennines.

The location provides ideal terrain for cycling with instant access to the surrounding beautiful countryside, whether that is the ‘hilly’ Peak District or the Cheshire ‘flats’.
