This brief history of the village conveniently splits into three parts, the first being the early history up to the 1600s. The second part looks at the major changes that occurred in the 18th and 19th centuries to both the village and the parish. The third and final part of this brief history focuses on the development of the village in the 20th century and the possible changes in the future.

In addition, there is some very interesting information available on the
'British History Online' website dealing specifically with the economic history of South Leigh. The link on the left will take you there directly.
