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.

Roadworks on B6451 26 May to 3 June.  Rolling closures, starting at A59 and moving along to Summerbridge.

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 link above.  You can also pick up a printed copy from Darley Shop.  Happy Sleuthing!

Darley Community Support Group has now been set up to assist people who are currently self-isolating. All households should have received a postcard giving them the contact details of their local volunteer who should be contacted if help is needed. If you do not have a postcard, please email darleychurch@gmail.com

The Loxley Homes building site opposite Stocks Green is currently closed, with all staff furloughed.
