Nether Exe, otherwise known as Netherexe, is a very small village in Devon, near the River Exe, from which it takes its name, about five miles north of Exeter.

Parish church

The Church of St John the Baptist is a small stone church set amidst fields close to the river south-west of the present day village, though there was once a manor house nearby.

The church is a Grade I listed building built in the late 15th century.[1] Services are still held regularly, if infrequently.[2]

The hamlet of Netherexe gives its name to the "Netherexe Parishes", a group of eight parishes with eleven churches under the pastoral care of a single vicar; though the smallest of them all, Netherexe is almost at the geographical centre of the group.
