Congleton was one of two branches opened by the Society during 1977, the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Year – the other being Cheadle – and is conveniently located within the busy market town’s main shopping area.
It’s a close-knit community – the town is, after all, famed for its textile production - and our team have worked hard to build a great working relationship with their customers, based on excellent, friendly, personal service.
We’ve also established close links with East Cheshire Hospice, raising many hundreds of pounds for the charity, thanks to the generosity of customers and staff alike.
The historic town is situated on the banks of the River Dane, overlooked by ‘The Cloud’ – a tall outcrop of rock on the Cheshire Plains.
Our Congleton branch is in the centre of town within easy reach of public transport and benefits from parking close by.
Parking is available at Princess Street, Chapel Street and West Street car parks all of which are within a 5 minute walk of the branch.
If you’re using public transport, then Congleton Railway station is less than a mile away, and the branch is also close to the bus station and bus stops for most routes including 90, 91, and 92.
Karen Henshall, the manager of our Congleton branch, joined Leek United in 2016 with 18 years of experience working in the financial services industry. Karen and her dedicated team work flexibly to place our members first and are focused on delivering an exceptional service.
