Matley is a semi-rural area now in Greater Manchester, England. part of the Metropolitan Borough of Tameside. It is located between the towns of Stalybridge, Hyde and Dukinfield.

Matley was a township of Mottram in Longdendale, one of the eight ancient parishes of the Macclesfield Hundred of Cheshire. Under the Poor Law Amendment Act 1886, the township became a civil parish in its own right. Between 1894 and 1936 Matley was a civil parish in the Tintwistle Rural District of Cheshire. The parish was abolished in 1936 and its former area was divided between the municipal boroughs of Stalybridge, Hyde and Dukinfield. Another source (A Vision of Britain through Time) states that part of Matley was located in Longdendale Urban District from 1936 until 1974. In 1974 these boroughs and urban districts were all abolished and their former areas transferred to Greater Manchester to form part of the present-day Metropolitan Borough of Tameside.
