Leigh is a small village, six miles north-west of Cerne Abbas.  In a field alongside the minor road from Leigh to Chetnole on the right-hand side of the road at the top of a slight hill is the site of one of England's ten remaining turf mazes . A gate leads directly into the field and the maze site is ahead, on the highest point. Its hexagonal bank is still just discernable and surrounds an area approximately 65 feet in diameter. The uneven ground within the bank is all that remains of the maze. This site is on private land but is easily accessible, if somewhat muddy after rain. There is a preservation order on the site, so restoration is a distinct possibility.
