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.

Cosy Cuppa Fridays are being established as part of the Warm Spaces Initiative.
All are welcome at Christ Church Community Centre every Friday between 10a.m. and noon to enjoy a cuppa, chat to others, pick up a book or play a board game.
