Byley is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England, about 2½ miles north of Middlewich.

According to the 2001 census it had a population of 202, increasing to 235 at the 2011 Census.[1]

This small village is said to be the 'Heart Of Cheshire'[citation needed]

During the Second World War, Vickers-Armstrongs operated a shadow factory at Byley assembling Vickers Wellington bombers. The completed aircraft were towed to the nearby RAF Cranage airfield to be test flown.
