Blackley is an area of the city of Manchester, in Greater Manchester, England. It is 3 miles (4.8 km) north of Manchester city centre, by a meander of the River Irk. Further north is Middleton. It is crossed by two main arterial roads from Manchester city centre; Rochdale Road (A664 road), to Middleton, and Cheetham Hill Road/Bury Old Road (A665 road) to Bury.

Boggart Hole Clough is a country park where many walks can be undertaken, guided or otherwise. Thanks to recent funding the park now has many leisure facilities; a bowling green, tennis and basketball courts, a boating lake and a children’s play area. It has its own permanent orienteering course and an athletics track. Visitors can enjoy family fun days in the summer and an annual firework display.
