"Sutton Church is a remarkable example of architectural development. The chancel, the octagon attached to it, the western door, the jambs and head of the western window, and the two western bays of the south aisle are of the Decorated period: the aisles, one of which is slightly earlier in date than the other, are Perpendicular: while the south porch belongs to the Tudor time...The tower of Sutton S. Mary...retains the wooden spire and pinnacles, with which it was originaly crowned. The composition of the bell-chamber story is full of grave and simple dignity; and the double arrangement of the lancets, a triple overlaid by a double series, almost unique."
Text by the Vicar of Mansfield H Leigh Bennett from the book 'The Fen and Marshland Churches'.
