Leigh Cliffs is a green open space, perfect for strolls and dog walks, offering beautiful views.
Leigh Cliff Conservation Area was designated a Conservation Area in 1981. It is located on the cliff top to the east of Leigh’s historic centre.
Leigh Cliff marks the start of Leigh’s transition from a village to a larger urban area in the late 19th century. Its special interest comes from its association with Leigh’s expansion and changing role, its typical late Victorian and Edwardian architecture and its fine position on the hillside overlooking the Estuary. Aspects contributing to its interest include:
Its position towards the top of the hill slope, the straight alignment of its streets and the open cliff gardens to the south provide a fine setting with many views of the Estuary.
