Visitors to a Staffordshire Moorlands town were treated to a host of classic cars, artisan foods and collectable wares to browse around at the weekend.

Leek's latest instalment of 'Music & Motors' took place on Saturday, on the same day as the weekly antiques and collectables market which takes place in the old cobbled Market Place.

The town's monthly Fine Foods Market also took place on Saturday with a wide variety of artisan food traders showcasing and selling their treats from stalls.

Dennis Salt, a member of the Leek Town Council Events Committee, said: "It was a surprisingly good day considering there were quite a few other events on where classic cars were in attendance.

"We had 15 classic cars which everybody enjoyed having a look around.

"The weather had forecast for rain but we were lucky in that it held off during the event.

"It's always good to hold the Music & Motors events on the same day as the antiques and collectables market along with the fine foods as they compliment each other."

Dennis, who runs D&K Domestics in Butter Market, added: "Our next Music & Motors event is hopefully going to be held in October and will have a tractor focus.

"It will be held to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the Saturday Antiques and Collectable's Market, which is run by Kevin Harper."
