A trip to Leek. A review of a super little Shop called ERA.

23 Feb

We travelled out to Leek, a hilly old mill town to the East of Stoke-on-Trent for a lunch break and a look around one of our favourite little Antiques and curio shops. Regular visitors to the Blog will know of our obsession for interesting items made from tactile materials. Wood, stone, metal and so on. Whatever catches our eye and fits into place in our old cottage. We actually travel far and wide in our campervan to¬† quality shops such as Liz’s. From Ludlow in the southern end of Shropshire to Carlisle in the North beyond the Lakes. East to West , we have seen both coasts. So when we say favourite, it’s quite a statement.

Liz picks out her stock carefully. We trust her choice and you are sure to find something of interest. Liz prices things sensibly, to sell too, refurbishing many items herself.

Pop in for a warm welcome from Liz and say that Dinkum sent you.


We had lunch at the popular Hollybush in nearby Cheddleton. Home crafted food in large portions. Alongside the canal for rambling or cycling. Want more ? Try Tittesworth Reservoir out towards The Roaches and Buxton beyond. What better way to enjoy your campervan?
