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. Many of these 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 beautiful parish with two village greens
(Low Green and Stocks Green), two churches
(Christ Church (Anglican) and Darley Methodist Church) and three community halls - Darley Memorial HallChrist Church Community Centre (CCCC) and Hookstone Memorial Hall.   Darley Community Primary School is situated in the centre of the village and the Wellington Inn and Darley Mill Centre (closed 24 December 2016) are at the edge of the village on the B6451. 

Recreational and sporting needs are catered for at Darley Playing Fields, where facilities include a football pitch and children's playground, and the Darley in Bloom group has been active for many years, keeping the village looking beautiful. Darley Debs Women's Institute started in October 2014 and is growing fast.   Darley Community Library operates from Christ Church Community Centre, opening several times a week. The village also has a Community Wireless Broadband Scheme. A Village Shop, Post Office and Café is now open in the Playing Fields Pavilion on Station Rd.
