Leigh Village

Leigh (also known as ‘The Leigh’ is a small village in North Wiltshire – not far from the border with neighbouring county Gloucestershire.

It is just to the south of the larger villages of Ashton Keynes and South Cerney. The nearest town is Cricklade; about three miles north east of Leigh.

The Leigh’s population is only a few hundred (372 according to the most recent Census), but residents are spread out over an area around 3 square miles (just under 10 square kilometres). The largest clusters are at Hillside on Swan Lane (approx 35 houses) and near the Foresters Arms pub (approx 20 houses).

There are two main roads which run through the village – the B4040 links Cricklade with Malmesbury, and the B4696 runs from Cirencester (in the North) to the outskirts of Royal Wootton Bassett (to the south).

These two roads intersect at Leigh crossroads, which has been a traffic controlled junction since the late eighties following a large number of serious road collisions.
