Matley is a semi-rural area of Greater Manchester, England. It is located in the Metropolitan Borough of Tameside 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 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. In 1974 these boroughs were abolished and their former areas transferred to Greater Manchester to form part of the present-day Metropolitan Borough of Tameside.
