Religious sites

St. Swithun's was built of flint and rubble around 1175. It is considered to be the best largely unspoilt example of a Norman single-cell apsidal church in England.


Hampshire Notes and Queries, Repr. from the Winchester Observer gives the name as meaning 'cattle field'. It is derived from the Anglo Saxon neat ('cattle' or 'beast' -- being a corruption of ne witan, or 'not to know'). Scures is from Anglo Saxon scua ('wood' or 'shade').[3] It is seen as Netlescures in 1413.[4]
