The circa 1842 Tithe Map showed [West] Leigh farmhouse to be still present (Plot Number 1229). There was no trace of the farmstead on the First Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map. Other details: Survey Number 2032. Map object based on this Source.

A cropmark on aerial photographs of July 1946 is likely to indicate the remains of a former field boundary, possibly that associated with Leigh farmhouse, as depicted on the circa 1842 Tithe Map. The cropmark appears to coincide with the boundary depicted on the circa 1842 Tithe Map, but at circa 70 metres in length, appears longer than the boundary depicted. It might therefore represent an earlier phase of enclosure. The farmstead is not depicted on the First Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map and had therefore probably been removed by circa the 1880s-1890s.
