Welcome to the Darley Village website

The Parish of Darley and Menwith is situated in Nidderdale, North Yorkshire, midway between Harrogate and Pateley Bridge. It has around 1200 inhabitants living in some 450 houses in what is known as a ribbon village. Many of the houses line Darley Main Street which stretches for over 1.5km, and others are on lanes leading off this street, or in the surrounding area. It is a thriving village with several community groups catering for all needs.

Work is starting to construct 3 affordable houses on the garage site at the back of Valley Road. See Local News for more information about dates and the access via Darley Playing Fields

Darley Community Library is re-opening on Saturday 5th September 10-12 noon.  Please wear a facemask to keep the volunteers safe. 

Darley WhoDunIt Trail   To help keep you occupied during your daily exercise, a circular route (about 1.5 hours) from Darley Shop has been devised, taking in the river bank and parts of the village. Along the way you need to look out for signs and names to help solve clues to a mystery. Suitable for adults and older children, though younger children could certainly help find the signs. Download by clicking on the title link at the start of this item.  You can also pick up a printed copy from Darley Shop.  Happy Sleuthing!

Darley Community Support Group is now on standby  to assist people who may need help. If you cannot contact your local volunteer,  please email darleychurch@gmail.com

Work on the Loxley Homes building site opposite Stocks Green has finished and families are moving in.
