Leigh is a village and civil parish (with Bransford) in the Malvern Hills District in the county of Worcestershire, England. With just a few hundred inhabitants the parish lies on the A4103, the main Worcester to Hereford road, about 5 miles out of Worcester, whilst Malvern is also about 5 miles away. It comprises the village of Bransford, and the hamlets of Brockamin, Leigh Sinton, Sandlin & Smith End Green.

Due largely to the significant reduction of the hop industry in the area, Leigh, like many local villages, declined in the late 20th century; it lost its pub, its police station and its railway station (with the closure of the Bromyard branch line in the 1960s).
