Netherton is a hamlet in Fyfield and Tubney civil parish about 4.5 miles (7 km) west of Abingdon. It was part of Berkshire until the 1974 boundary changes transferred it to Oxfordshire.

The toponym is derived from the Old English neotherra meaning "lower, nether" and dun meaning "hill".[citation needed] It was recorded as Netendon in 1193.[citation needed]

Netherton is primarily residential. Netherton is linked with Oxford by Whites Coaches route 63 bus that runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
