Leek is an Ancient Market Town. Its centre is set within a Conservation Area. Pedestrians young and old, should not be frightened whilst shopping and enjoying this town's history and architecture. Peoples' health and safety is more important in the town centre than cars and heavy traffic vehicles.
Why is this important?
