Langley is an area of Middleton in the Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, England, 4.4 miles (7.1 km) south-southwest of Rochdale and 5.5 miles (8.9 km) north-northeast of Manchester City Centre.
Langley is an overspill estate, created in the 1950s for Manchester City Council. Families moved into the new housing from the slum clearance areas of Manchester, the eventual population of about 25,000 doubling that of Middleton.
All the street names are adopted from different areas of the Lake District.
