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.

There were elections on 5 May 2022 for the new North Yorkshire Council, and also for the Parish Council.  Andrew Murday was elected as North Yorkshire County Councillor for our division, and the seven places on the Parish Council went to D Dickinson, R Ferguson, J McAllister, N Nicholas, A Robertshaw, P Ward and S Welch.  More details will be posted in the Parish Council section very soon.
