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 stop 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.
The manager of the Derby St Branch, Sheila Kirk has been with the building society for more than 35 years and understands exactly what matters to our members.
She and her team are committed to delivering the best service through their branch and offer a warm welcome to their branch. If you are in town shopping and want to talk about Leek United’s products and services, Sheila welcomes you to the branch to see how we can help.
