The Parish of Long Sutton is situated in the heart of Somerset, bordered to the south by the Levels and the river Yeo and to the north by rolling hills and woods. The Parish contains the village of Long Sutton and the hamlets of Knole and Upton.
Long Sutton is an excellent centre for walking, cycling, fishing and golf and to relax and enjoy the ambience of the countryside. Facilities include a good shop and post office, two pubs/hotels and an excellent primary school.Within a few miles of the Parish there are many very good hotels and restaurants and a wide variety of tourist attractions.
At the centre of the village is the Green which is surrounded by a splendid XVIth century church and other interesting listed buildings making it one of the most attractive villages in the county. Knole, hidden between hills, is smaller and more snug and has many lovely cottages.
Research, carried out by a local resident, has assembled in poignant detail the personal histories of the young soldiers from the village who died in the first World War and whose names are inscribed on the village War Memorial.
VILLAGE HALL SUPPORTERS
A number of residents have come together with the objective of maintaining and making improvements to the Village Hall and the sports ground as well as the associated buildings and equipment. Notes from the meetings can be found here.
