The church is St Swithun's. The village pub is the Willoughby Arms, and there is the George Hotel on High Street (A607). Prince Charles, similar to other RAF officer cadets, often called in at the pub when at nearby RAF Cranwell. The Leadenham players have been performing in the village hall here for the past 25 years.
The Royal Flying Corps built an airfield nearby on the top of the hill to the east in 1916, but it closed in 1919.
The Leadenham Pantomime is performed at the village hall every year in the last weekend of January and the first weekend of February.
