Leigh is a village and civil parish in Surrey, between Reigate, Dorking and Charlwood in the east of Mole Valley District. The village centre is suburban and its remainder is agricultural, interspersed by four satellite clustered localities: Dawesgreen, Bunce Common, Shellwood Cross and Nalderswood which benefit from the amenities of the village. A minority of the remainder of the parish is woodland.

Leigh was part of the Reigate Rural District from 1894 until 1933, the Dorking and Horley Rural District from 1933 until 1974, and of the Mole Valley District since 1974. The four communities listed above are briefly described in Wikipedia and have all been redirected here.
