    House & Family History: Originally built as a hunting box in the early 18th century, Netheravon was expanded into a proper country house in the late 18th century. In the late 19th century the British government acquired the house, together with most of the parish, and converted the entire area into an army camp. It served as a cavalry school, a machine gun school, and an officers' mess. In the 1990s the Ministry of Defence sold Netheravon House, which was converted into two private homes. In late 2020 the larger section of Netheravon was listed for sale for £2.3 million.
