Why do I live in a town that’s name is synonymous with a vegetable? Most people have never heard of Leek: a small town in Staffordshire, which lies at the foot of the Peak District. Up until 7 months ago I had never given Leek a second thought. I was living in Portsmouth, having just moved from London where I’d lived for 6 years.
