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.
Coronation Events in Darley Memorial Hall are being organised under the banner of Focus on Darley to give the village the opportunity to celebrate over the Bank Holiday weekend. There will be a Coronation Ceilidh on Saturday 6 May from 7pm and a Coronation Cream Tea on Monday 8 May. Watch out for more details about volunteering to help or buying tickets.
