There are around seven places called leigh in the VT database. This happens to be the top of the list and is,luckily, the Leigh I've been to. I'll go back later, check the others out.
But why so many 'Leighs' but no Beer Hackett, no Ryme Intrinseca? It may well be that these places , the ripest of the names spotted on fingerposts in the vicinity of this Leigh consists of two houses and a decayed barn, but surely places with such an interesting names are worthy of inclusion. (there was a Ryme Extrinseca, but nobody can remember where it was)
It's not as though this Leigh is anywhere of great note: a church, a (spanking new and magnificent) village hall and most probably somewhere a Post Office Cottage. Ordinary place in the Dorset counryside near Sherborne, pretty enough and entirely without urban amenities. Shoppin is down to the garage where you can also get essentials such as cigarettes and videos.
Yes, you've guessed it, I'm an urban animal and these vast expanses of eff-all lightly sprinkled with sheep are.......alien.
The country, the country, it realy gets you down
There's something about the country
That makes you love the Town.
Actually this is cow country rather than sheep country.
Cockney visitor to the country, addressing yokel:
'Excuse me, but can you tell me why those cows havn't got horns?'
'well, some cows, they don't have horns beacuse their horns, they,ve been docked. And some cows, they don't have horns because they be an hornless breed.'
Now those cows over there, they don't have horns because they be horses.....
