Little Leighs is a village and ancient parish in the Chelmsford hundred of Essex. Along with Great Leighs it is part of the civil parish of Great and Little Leighs.[1]

Little Leighs lies beside the River Ter, just south of the village of Great Leighs. Until rerouting bypassed the village, Little Leighs was on the A131 road.

The church in the village is dedicated to St John the Evangelist. Built of flint rubble, the fabric of the structure dates back at least as far as the early twelfth century.[2]
