Welcome to the Darley Village website

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.

Darley Community Library is now open on Saturdays 10-12 noon.  Please wear a facemask to keep the volunteers safe.
