Nether Poppleton is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of the City of York in North Yorkshire, England. It is situated by the West bank of the River Ouse north of Upper Poppleton, and west of York close to the A59 York to Harrogate road.. The village is served by Poppleton railway station on the Harrogate line.

According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 2,077. Prior to 1996 it had been part of the Harrogate district. The name is derived from popel (pebble) and tun (hamlet, farm), and means "Pebble Farm", due to the gravel bed upon which the village was built.[1] The neighbouring village of Upper Poppleton has been referred to as "Land Poppleton" and Nether Poppleton as "Water Poppleton" indicating their position relative to the river.

The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book and the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles.[1] It became a Conservation Area in 1993. The earthworks to the north and east of the parish church are designated as a Scheduled Monument(53°59′23.12″N 1°8′25.95″W / 53.9897556°N 1.1405417°W / 53.9897556; -1.1405417).[2]
