Welcome to Leigh and District History

This site is dedicated to the history of the town of Leigh and the surrounding area.

We will unearth and publish forgotten news and stories,letters from local soldiers fighting abroad, accidents, sporting and leisure and the infrastructure of the towns. It is not intended to be a forum, but we welcome any input, short articles of historic interest and local photographs, which can be uploaded in the relevant section. Photos will not be defaced, and credit or copyright will be given to the owners where appropriate
