Netley Abbey, sometimes referred to as Netley, is a village on the south coast of Hampshire, England. It is situated on the east side of the city of Southampton. It is flanked on the one side by the ruins of Netley Abbey and on the other by the Royal Victoria Country Park, which is the site of the old Royal Victoria Military Hospital (or Netley Hospital); built after the Crimean War, and used extensively from 1863 through to World War II. In fact it continued to be used as a military hospital until its closure in 1979 when it was converted into a country park. It is located in the Parish of Hound, an area which also covers Butlocks Heath and Old Netley. The oldest part of Netley retains the feel of a somewhat old-fashioned and quaint village, with some traditional small shops, and rows of colourful terraced cottages. It is located along the shore of Southampton Water; the shingle beach looks across to Hythe and Calshot, although the vista is somewhat dominated by Fawley Oil Refinery. Away from the shore, larger estates of houses have developed over the years which have greatly increased Netley's population and blurred the boundary between Netley Abbey and Butlocks Heath, but the village still retains the feel of a small community. There were two schools linked to each other, called Netley Abbey Infant School and Netley Abbey & Butlocks Heath County Junior School; extensive building occurred onsite at the junior school in the late 1980s and the site now provides a Primary School for the village. There are a handful of churches, including the Parish Church of St Edward The Confessor. Netley railway station features hourly services to Southampton and Portsmouth. Wikipedia
