Nether Seal (or 'Netherseale') is the southernmost village of the English county of Derbyshire. The village is less than 2 miles from the neighbouring county of Leicestershire, and is close to the A444 and the important M42 motorway, on the banks of the River Mease.

Nether Seal was in Leicestershire until 1889. For an explanation of the change of counties, see the Wikipedia article named Overseal and the WeRelate article on Over Seal.


St Peter's Church, Nether Seal is the final resting place of Sir Nigel Gresley (1727-1787) and the village is the birthplace of the historian, Eben William Robertson (1815-1874). It has a couple of 17th century almshouses, but The Tudor Hall, once the home of the Gresley family, is now long gone having been demolished in 1933.
