Netherfield is a small town three miles (5 km) east of Nottingham in the borough of Gedling, approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) between Colwick and Carlton and near the River Trent.
Despite its small size, Netherfield still has its own train station. In 1846, the Midland Railway Company opened their Nottingham to Lincoln line which formed the north-western boundary of Netherfield. There was a large increase in the population of the area at this time and rows of terraced Victorian houses were built to accommodate their needs. This architecture remains characteristic of Netherfield.

There is a large Morrisons supermarket on Victoria Parkway near the A612 together with Victoria Retail Park which houses a Boots, B&Q, Argos, Costa, Halfords, TK Maxx, B&M, Oak Furnitureland, Pets at Home, JD Sports and Next among others
