About Netley Marsh Parish History Group

The Netley Marsh Parish History Group was formed in 2017 and meets monthly at the Community Hall in Woodlands Road. New members and visitors are always welcome.

Two very good documents record the history of the parish, The Netley Marsh Parish Plan and 100 Years of Parish Life (please see links below).
