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.
World War 1 Commemoration
Long Sutton Parish Council wish to commemorate the start of the World War 1 on Sunday and Monday August 3rd/ 4th with an exhibition tent placed on the Village Green, but we need your help. For more information, please see this document.
VILLAGE HALL SUPPORTERS
Village Hall Big Breakfast an outstanding success: On Saturday 28th June, the Big Breakfast proved very popular with over 120 breakfasts being served. Somerton and Martock Fire crews were an extra draw, washing cars whilst breakfast was served! The event made £811 for the Village Hall refurbishment project. The organisers would like to thank all those who made this such a success: the two chefs and all the volunteer helpers, the Fire Service staff, LS Village Stores and all the villagers who came along for a hearty breakfast. Further details coming soon.
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.
