Hyde Lea Parish is located west of Stafford Borough and has the M 6 motorway as its boundary with the borough. It is bounded on the north by Seighford Parish, the west by Haughton Parish and the south by Dunston & Coppenhall Parish.

Hyde Lea was formerly Castlechurch Parish, and came into existence in April 2003 following the electoral boundary change that removed a large percentage of the parish into the Borough of Stafford.
