Nether Denton is a scattered settlement and civil parish in rural Cumbria, situated about 12 miles (19 km) north-east of Carlisle, by the A69 road. The population of the parish taken at the 2011 census was 415.[1]

St. Cuthbert's Church at Nether Denton is built at the site of a Roman fort, around 0.5 miles (0.80 km) south of Hadrian's Wall on the Stanegate road. The present building dates from 1868-70, but there has been a church on the site since the 12th century.[2] Denton Hall, now a farmhouse, comprises a 14th-century pele tower, gabled and reduced in height, adjoining a house of 1829. The walls of the tower are 2m thick.[3]
