Also the historical Village of Sutton Valence can trace its origins back to the Iron Age. The Romans and Normans also left their mark whilst friends of the Kings of England laid the foundations of buildings that remain today. This desirable village is full of character, constructed on different levels and perched on the side of a steep hill. In the churchyard is a memorial to John Wilkes (died 1852) who first introduced round arm bowling to cricket. To the East of the main road are the remains of the Castle, a small square Norman Keep, with ragstone walls eight feet thick. Dominating the northern part of the Village is Sutton Valence School, founded in 1578 by William Lambe (1495-1580), a London Cloth worker who was born in the Village. Sutton Valence Village offers friendly local shops and facilities for one’s everyday needs as well as several esteemed Country Inns.
