Description:'The Grammar and National Schools at Leek, Staffordshire.' Showing a building in two blocks; [?the school and dwelling house for masters.]'J. Buckler.'

Rev. B. Maude established an institute at the old grammar school on Clerk Bank in 1895 comprising of a working men's club and a young men's union. The following year he put the building in the hands of trustees and the institute became known as the Maude Church Institute for both men and women attending St. Edward's Church. The parishioners raised £191 in support of Maude's work and this money was used to pay off the mortgage on the institute. In the mid 1970s the building was enlarged and became a venue for several voluntary organisations.
