LEEK Tourist Information Centre in the town's Market Place has been closed.

The office reopened on Monday at its new location on the first floor of the Nicholson Institute building on Stockwell Street.

A council spokesman said that people visiting the office from Monday, June 30, would also be able to enjoy the exhibits in the Nicholson Museum and Art Gallery at the same time. The move will save the council taxpayers around £42,500 per year.

Councillor Gill Burton, who has the responsibility for communities at Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, said: "This relocation to a site just across the road has allowed us to create a cultural and community facility which is free and accessible to everyone.

"It's an exciting move which means that, in a single historic location, we will provide tourist information alongside a wealth of art exhibitions, performance events and historical displays, together with the opportunity to buy quality local goods in the Nicholson shop.

"We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to our new home and to showcasing the best of the Moorlands here in Leek."

The council has been looking to sublet the Market Place premises since 2011.
