About the Book

This sister volume to Leek Through Time considers some of the villages and countryside skirting the north of the town. Although rural and sometimes bleak, none of the areas covered here is more than twenty minutes' drive from Leek. To the north-west of Leek lies Rudyard Lake, created in 1797 to feed water to the Caldon and Trent & Mersey canals. The lake, with its two railway stations, once attracted huge numbers of visitors and gave Rudyard Kipling his name. Rushton straddles the Leek - Macclesfield road and plays host to many walkers passing through en route to and from the Dane Valley. The Dane 'feeder' provides a footpath from Rushton to Wincle and Swythamley, above which rise the Roaches at the end of the Pennine Chain. Also nestling beneath the Roaches are Meerbrook, Upper Hulme and Tittesworth Reservoir. The journey ends at Blackshaw Moor.
About the Author: Neil Collingwood was born in 1956 in Leek, Staffordshire (where he now lives) although most of his life has been spent in Newcastle-under-Lyme. He developed an interest in local history following a period working as a Museum Attendant at Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Museum after obtaining a degree in Applied Biology. He soon discovered the archive collection of old photographs that the Museum held and asked for permission to catalogue them on computer (up to that point there was only a handwritten paper list of about 1,500 photos). After his fixed-term contract ended he remained working as a volunteer archivist at the Museum for about 7 years and catalogued a lot more of the archive besides the photographs. He has had two previous local history photo books published and also an Atlas of the Dragonflies of Staffordshire. He has done many slide-talks on Newcastle-under-Lyme using both old photos and his own and have also delivered a couple of lectures at the Museum on using and dating old photographs to people on local history courses. He is probably now an authority on photos of Newcastle.
