Chinley (Old English: wood or clearing by a ravine) is a rural village in High Peak Borough in Derbyshire, England, with a population of around 2000. Most of the civil parish is within the Peak District National Park. Before the coming of the railway, the area was economically dominated by agriculture and quarrying. Three textile mills were established in the valley during the 19th century. Nowadays most inhabitants commute out of the village to work; accessible centres of work include Stockport, Sheffield and Manchester.
