Darley Dale Town Council

Darley Dale lies in the Derwent Valley in Derbyshire. It is situated in the heart of the UK, 20 miles north of the city of Derby, on the border of the Peak District National Park between Matlock and Bakewell.

It is twinned with Onzain, a small semi-rural town in the Loire Valley, France. visit the twinning website here

The town offers residents and visitors alike a wide range of facilities and a wealth of history. Over the centuries, it has been home to many notable people including the Victorian mechanical engineer Sir Joseph Whitworth, the family of Charles Darwin, the author Crighton Porteous, and the world famous horticulturalist Joseph Paxton. Darley Dale is also the birthplace of snooker ace Nigel Bond.

Darley Dale Town Council was formed in 1980 and consists of 12 councillors - seven covering the North Ward and five covering the South Ward. Meetings are normally held on the third Thursday of each month at 7pm (except August) at The Whitworth Centre, Darley Dale. A period of 10 minutes at the start and end of meetings is allowed for members of the public to raise issues with the Town Council.
