Disley is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It is located on the very edge of the Peak District, in the Goyt Valley, very close to the county boundary with Derbyshire at New Mills, and south of Stockport, Greater Manchester. To the north of the village, the River Goyt and the Peak Forest Canal, which opened in 1800, passes along the edge of the village. Today it is a dormitory village retaining a semi-rural character.Disley railway station is on the Manchester to Buxton line, with through trains to Preston and Blackpool.The parish includes part of the neighbouring village of Newtown, the bulk of which is in Derbyshire.HistoryIts Anglo-Saxon name was Dystiglegh meaning "windy settlement" or possibly Wood or clearing by a mound. In the 13th century, in the time of Edward I, there are references to confirmatory grants of land made to Jordan de Dystelegh of Disley Hall and Roger de Stanley-de-Dystelegh of Stanley Hall in the district, pointing to even older local settlements. It later had the name Dystelegh.
