Cathryn Walton - a memory from the area

 

I am a Leek local historian and some years ago traced the Boswell family of Gypsies who settled in Leek before moving to Macclesfield. Before they settled in the town, they travelled around the area and I'm told that in Leek always set up camp on Abbey Green Road.
