Bordley is a village in the Craven district of North Yorkshire, England, within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and 12 miles (19 km) north of Skipton. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 23.

Bordley was historically part of the township of Hetton with Bordley in the ancient parish of Burnsall in the West Riding of Yorkshire.[1] In the late 19th century it became a separate township,[2] and it became a separate civil parish in 1866.[3] It was transferred to the new county of North Yorkshire in 1974. The civil parish was abolished in 2012 and amalgamated with the parish of Hetton to form the new civil parish of Hetton-cum-Bordley.[4]
