Leek Derby Street Branch was opened in 1985, to complement the Society’s existing St. Edward Street facility.
Today, it’s regarded as our ‘flagship’ branch, situated in the town’s main shopping street and offering a more convenient access for all our members.
Like our Uttoxeter branch, the premises used to be a pub, The Duke of York, and – prior to Leek United moving in – a furniture store.
Known locally as ‘The Queen of the Moorlands’, Leek is the Staffordshire Moorlands’ principal town and the most important centre on the south-western edge of the Peak District.
Historically, Bonnie Prince Charlie passed through Leek in 1745, and Thomas Brindley (builder of the Bridgewater Canal) built a water mill here in 1750. That has been restored to working order and is now a fine museum.
Our branch on Derby Street in Leek is well served by public transport. There is a bus station close by which is served by the 16, 108 and 166 services, and we are within walking distance of the local shops and cafes.
If you’re driving into town to visit us, then parking is available close by at the Silk Street Car Park which is pay and display.
We understand the importance of being able to speak to someone face to face. Our dedicated team at Leek Derby Street branch work flexibly to place our members first and are focused on delivering an exceptional service.
Whether you are looking to make the most of your savings or investments, exploring mortgage options for your first or next home, needing friendly help with your household insurance or planning for your retirement, be sure to pop into the branch for a warm welcome.
