TANSLEY HAS A DEFIBRILLATOR LOCATED OUTSIDE THE GATE INN, THE KNOLL, DE4 5FN


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 Village Hall and a Community Hall, a gift and pottery shop (Lots Of Pots), a primary school, Anglican and Methodist churches, lots of historic buildings, two old cotton manufacturing mills and mill ponds, two pubs (The Gate Inn and The Tavern), a Nepalese/Indian restaurant (Matlock Gurkha Inn - formerly The Royal Oak pub), garden centres and a small industrial area. It is adjacent to the water-mill heritage site of Lumsdale. The village's population is slightly under 1200. It is served by an infrequent but useful bus service (150) linking it to Matlock to the west and east to Wessington, Alfreton and Clay Cross.

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, Stockport and Manchester. It also has a regular train service to Derby and Nottingham and a four mile heritage steam railway.
