Langley Mill is a small town in the Amber Valley district of Derbyshire, England. It is on the border of Nottinghamshire, and runs into the towns of Aldercar (to the west) and Heanor (to the south). Across the River Erewash is the Nottinghamshire town of Eastwood. It is part of the Aldercar and Langley Mill parish. Although the town has an "NG" postcode, it is in Derbyshire. (The boundary used to be the River Erewash, but the River Erewash canal basin moved from Nottinghamshire to Derbyshire a few years ago, and the A610 is the new boundary.)[citation needed]

Originally named Long Lea, the village of Langley Mill was a major employer throughout the mid 1900s with many companies including The Flour Mill, Langley Mill Pottery, Aristoc & Co Ltd and Vic Hallam Limited.

Aristoc & Co Limited on North Street became a target for German Bombers during the Second World War. Originally a manufacturer of silk stockings, Aristoc manufactured parachutes for the war effort. The buildings have now been replaced with housing.

International Superbike champion Ron Haslam hailed from Langley Mill. He won many titles in the 1970s and early 1980s on the international motorcycle scene, pitting his natural talents against major stars including Barry Sheene.

Langley (not Langley Mill) is in the Heanor and Loscoe parish.

The town is the site of Langley Mill railway station, on the Erewash Valley Line. The A610 £2.5 million Langley Mill Bypass was opened on 8 September 1983, by Joe Carty, the leader of Derbyshire County Council.

On 16 November 2009 Asda gained planning permission for a £25 million re-development of the Heanor Haulage site. The new Asda store containing 36,000 feet of sales space officially opened at 10am on 8 November 2010.
