Welcome to our Darley Dale / Onzain Twinning website

We have a supporter mailing list and if you are a resident of Darley Dale & District and would like to be kept informed of our twinning activities, please email our secretary on

Darley Dale is in the Derbyshire Dales near Matlock and has been twinned with Onzain in France since 1989. We held special celebrations of our 10th, 20th, 25th and 30th anniversaries of the signing of the Twinning Agreement in addition to our regular twinning exchange visits.

Onzain is between Tours and Blois in the Loire Valley, about 200 km south west of Paris
