Leigh Town Image Leigh is surrounded by open farmland and retains a strong sense of its own identity. It also has its own railway station on the Reading-Tonbridge line.

At the heart of the village is the green, fringed by chestnuts and oaks, and serving as the home ground for the village cricket, football and stoolball teams.

Overlooking the green is the 14th century parish church of St Mary, with many interesting architectural features, as well as several of the village’s many listed buildings. Some of these date back to the 15th century, whilst others were designed by the eminent Victorian architects, George Devey and Sir Ernest George.

Leigh is fortunate in still having its own village stores and post office, together with two public houses.
