Nately Scures is a small village now in the civil parish of Newnham in the Basingstoke and Deane District of Hampshire, England. Until 1932 it was a separate civil parish. Its nearest large village is Hook, which lies approximately 1.7 miles (2.7 km) northeast of the village.

Its parish church, St. Swithun's, was built of flint and rubble around 1175. It is considered to be the best largely unspoilt example of a Norman single-cell apsidal church in England. The church is described in more detail in A Vision of Britain through Time.
