Saxlingham Nethergate is a village and civil parish in Norfolk, England, about 9.5 miles (15 km) south of Norwich.

The civil parish has an area of 3.3 square miles (8.5 km2) and the 2001 Census recorded a population of 676 in 276 households, the population increasing to 688 at the 2011 Census.[1] For the purposes of local government, the parish falls within the district of South Norfolk.[2] The Church of England parish church of St. Mary is Decorated Gothic, with a chancel, nave and square west tower with a ring of eight bells.
