Tintwistle Rural District was a local government district in north east Cheshiremarker, Englandmarker from 1894 to 1974.

It was created a rural district by the Local Government Act 1894 from the part of the Ashton under Lynemarker rural sanitary district which was in Cheshire and consisted of the civil parishes of:

Hattersley and Matley formed an exclave of the district. They were abolished in 1936 and used to enlarge the Municipal Borough of Hydemarker, the Municipal Borough of Dukinfieldmarker, Longendale Urban Districtmarker and the Municipal Borough of Stalybridgemarker.

In 1974 the district was abolished. At that time, much of north east Cheshire became part of Greater Manchestermarker. Instead of becoming part of that county, or forming an exclave of Cheshire, Tintwistle instead became part of the High Peakmarker district of Derbyshiremarker.
