Part of the Leigh parish falls within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  This is one of fifty AONBs within England and Wales.  AONBs are part of a family of protected landscapes that includes National Parks and Heritage Coasts. They are designated by Government to ensure that the conservation and enhancement of the landscape is given high priority.  The High Weald became an AONB in 1983.
