Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War
A commemorative programme of events to uncover and explore the impact on the population of Leek and the Staffordshire Moorlands during the Great War.
“If you should hear the sound of horses feet or the rumble of gun limbers in the street then pause, and say a prayer where e’er you roam It’s the ghosts of the ‘Old Leek Battery’, coming home. There by destiny… Home in Memory.”
[Preface from ‘Over There’ A Commemorative History of The Old Leek Battery 1908 -1919 by J.E. Blore and J.R. Sherratt]
