Explore Old Leigh

Old Leigh is a fantastic place not only for history but for the local economy with its 1000 year old fishing industry. Treat yourself to the famous Leigh cockles whilst watching the boats go by the peaceful waterside. The Sailing Club, Sea Scouts, Motor Boat Club and Yacht Club all provide an educational welcome to Old Leigh. Discover the history of the old town at The Leigh Heritage Centre, housed in the old Smithy. The Old Town also has a number of pubs and restaurants which are very popular among locals and tourists alike!

Going east from the Old Town is the Cinder Path which provides a wonderful waterside walk to Chalkwell. Walking along the Cliffs provides a panoramic view of the Estuary and the Kent coast is quite visible on a clear day.
