The township of Leek and Lowe, 2,722 a. (1,105 ha.) in area, included the town of Leek and a rural area to the east, south, and west. There were also three detached areas, one adjoining the Poolend area of Leekfrith, another on the east side of the Buxton road at Blackshaw Moor, and a small area on the south bank of the river Churnet north of the town. A market centre by the 13th century and a centre of the silk industry from the 18th century, the town was described in 1793 as the capital of the Moorlands and in the later 19th century as both the metropolis and the queen of the Moorlands. The style Queen of the Moorlands was used on the signs erected in 1992 on five roads entering the town.
In 1894 the built-up area was taken into the new Leek urban district and civil parish, and the area to the south became the civil parish of Leek and Lowe, renamed Lowe in 1895. The detached portions at Poolend and Blackshaw Moor were added to the civil parishes of Leekfrith and Tittesworth respectively, and the detached portion by the Churnet became part of the urban district. Lowe civil parish was taken into the urban district in 1934. (fn. 43) In 1974 the urban district became a parish in the new district of Staffordshire Moorlands. The present article deals with the former township, but for certain topics it also includes that part of the former Tittesworth township which has become a north-eastern suburb of Leek town.
The boundary of Leek and Lowe township was formed by various watercourses except on the north-east: the Churnet on the north-west and west, Leek brook on the south, Kniveden brook, so named by the early 13th century, on the east, and Ball Haye brook (now culverted) on the north. Ball Haye brook may be the earlier Church brook, mentioned in 1281 as ‘kyrkebroke’ and in 1569 as a tributary of the Churnet. The name Leek may derive from either the Old English lece or the Old Norse loekr, both meaning brook. The brook was perhaps the stream called the Spout Water running down what is now Brook Street (formerly Spout Lane) and the north side of Broad Street, or its tributary which ran from a spring in St. Edward’s churchyard down the west side of St. Edward Street (formerly Spout Street).

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
