The Old Post Office
This is the old post Office, it has just ben re-opened in a bigger premises just further down the road, but they are not allowed to sell this builing a it is a listed house/building. The family who run the Post Office still live above the old one.
The new one sells everything from cards, magazines, sweets, wrapping paper, ornaments and much more.

East Leake Off The Beaten Path
This is a very old photo taken in 1880. It shows you Gotham Road where now there are houses, my old school ( soon to be knocked down ) and the village park and bowling green. Looking at it myself I still can't picture it as it is now it is so weird !
This is one of the Cottages hidden away from where the weaving and lace was made.
Now converted into houses they still have the original feel about them and are worth a small fortune
If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
