Leigham
Leigham
Leigham is the name of an area of the city of Plymouth.
Originally a hamlet and manor separate from the city, urban expansion of the 20th century has meant that the area has become widely built up. The area is located to the north east of Plymouth itself.
The place name is Anglo Saxon in origin, and means 'an open space in a wood'. In the Domesday Book of 1086 it was referred to as Leaham and was recorded as consisting of the manor and two farms.
