Leigh is a village and civil parish in northwest Dorset, England, southwest of Sherborne. The village has a population of 509 (2001). In a field just south of the village lie the remains of the "Miz Maze", an earthwork of uncertain origin that, centuries ago, folklore attributes to having connections with witchcraft - possibly a meeting place for witches. Little remains now except a few grassy mounds.
