The village of Leighton goes back many centuries and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1087. It is only four miles from the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, home of the world's first bridge to be constructed of iron, built between 1777 and 1779. The Ironbridge Gorge is situated in a beautiful wooded valley and the village of Leighton is home to a variety of public houses, restaurants, tea-rooms and shops, and a collection of separately themed locations make up the Ironbridge Museums. The National Trust Properties of Attingham Hall and Park are close by as well as the fascinating Wroxeter Roman City and Vineyard. With a wealth of historical attractions and a host of outdoor pursuits, this area has a lot to offer visitors at any time of year.
A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
