Tansley is in Derbyshire , 1.5 miles east of Matlock, in the south-east of the Peak District,
just outside the Peak District National Park in the centre of England.

Tansley is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Tanslege. Tan means a branch of a valley. Lega/leah means a wood/glade. So Tansley is the wooded glade in the branch of a valley. [ack. Denys Gaskell]

The village has a village green with a play area, a fete/football field, a primary school, a Village Hall and a Community Hall, Anglican and Methodist churches, lots of historic buildings, two old cotton manufacturing mills and mill ponds, two pubs (The Gate Inn and The Tavern), two garden centres nearby and a small, very useful, industrial sales and service area. It is adjacent to the water-mill heritage site of Lumsdale. The village's population is slightly under 1200. This is likely to increase by 25% when 100 extra homes are completed under currently approved development plans. Tansley is served by two infrequent (2 or 3 hourly) but useful bus services, the 150 linking it to Matlock to the west and east to Wessington, Alfreton and Clay Cross and the 140 linking Tansley (stopping only at The Tavern Inn) with Matlock and east/south to Lea, Holloway, Crich, South Wingfield and Alfreton.

Nearby Matlock has good bus links to places throughout the Peak District, including Ashbourne, Ashford-in-the-Water, Ashover, Bakewell, Baslow, Birchover (for Stanton Moor), Bonsall, Buxton, Carsington Water, Chatsworth, Crich, Cromford, Elton, Haddon Hall, Holloway, Lea (for Lea Gardens), Rowsley, Youlgrave, Wensley, Winster and Wirksworth and to the cities of Derby, Chesterfield, Sheffield and, via connection at Buxton, to Stockport and Manchester. It also has a regular train service to Derby and a four mile heritage steam railway.
