This is where it all began – our first branch situated within Leek United’s main Customer Service Centre.
St. Edward Street provides a traditional and supportive link to the Society’s flagship branch in nearby Derby Street, as well as providing speedy, efficient service for members without venturing into the main shopping area.
The branch has seen some historic changes over the years. In 1928, a new extension to the building was opened and let to the Commissioners of the Inland Revenue, who remained Leek United’s tenants until 1952, when the Society took over the whole premises.
In 2013, Leek United celebrated its 150th anniversary – and St. Edward Street remains the Society’s ‘heartland home’.
If you are planning to come into the St. Edward Street branch, you can find parking nearby in the main shopping area at the Silk Street and St. Edward Street car parks. There is also limited parking closer to the branch.
Richard Czapski, the manager of our St. Edward Street branch, first joined the Society in 2005. Since then, he has overseen our Ashbourne branch, Leek Derby Street branch and also our Stone and Wirksworth agencies before being appointed as Branch Manager of St. Edward Street branch in 2014. Richard and his dedicated team 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.
