Leek’s first market was established by Royal Charter in 1207 and the town is still a thriving market centre. The Market Cross, Leek Architecture 207which now stands in the Market Place, was originally erected, near the junction of Sheepmarket and Stanley Street, by the Joliffe family in 1671. It was moved to Cornhill on Cheddleton Road in 1806 and in 1857 it was moved to the new cemetery. Since 1986 it has stood near to its original site in Leek Market Place.
