People want to live somewhere that has everything but rarely find it. Luckily for you, Sutton is one of those places. It is a large town in south-west London and a part of the Borough of Sutton. It was formerly a part of Surrey and is located 10.9 miles south south-west of Charing Cross. It is bordered by St. Helier in the north, Carshalton in the east, Belmont in the south, Stoneleigh in the west, with Morden, Mictham, Wallington and Cheam nearby. It’s postcode districts are SM1, SM2 and SM3.
The name of the town was recorded in the Domesday Book as Sudtone, meaning “south farm.” Archaeological findings suggests early Roman inhabitation. In 1086 the Manor was held by the Abbot of Chertsey and remained this way up to 1538 when the manor was sold to Henry VIII who granted the land to Nicholas Carew. The area later returned to the Crown and then to Carew’s son. Charles II later obtained it and then sold it, with it regularly changing hands afterwards. A turnpike road was constructed in 1755 from London to Brighton and toll bars and inns were built alongside it. The next major addition to the area was the railway in 1847, which resulted in an boom in the population. The New Town housing was created and though it no longer exists it is commemorated by the New Town Pub. The town was damaged by the Blitz with may casualties.
Most of the town’s architecture is of the Victorian style with some Edwardian buildings. There are several large open spaces in Sutton; Manor Park, Sutton Green and Sutton Common. There are several churches; namely St. Nicholas church, Sutton Baptist Church and Trinity Church. There are examples of public art in the town centre including a large mosaic, a painting of all of the towns Sutton is twinned with and the Millennium Dial armillary. The local library is situated near St. Nicholas Church, as is a cinema.
