    There are many activites NOW in the village thanks to the new school thats just been built. This is one of them and is for the more older person ( but not necessraly! ) or the laid back. You will find the Bowling Green on your right just as you turn down Gotham Road

    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
