East Sutton

East Sutton, along with Sutton Valence and Chart Sutton is one of the Three Suttons, a triplet of parishes occupying an east-west strip of countryside that tumbles down a steep hillside into The Weald.
It is a largely farming community. The 14th Century church of St Peter and St Paul has a Jacobean pulpit and a late 13th Century font.
The village hall is named after the Filmer family who played an important part in the history of the parish. Their home was Sutton Park, a rambling red brick mansion built mainly in the 16th and 17th Century
Latterly the house has been used as a borstal in 1946 and more recently as a prison for both adult and young offender women in open conditions.

Village Halls

A village hall is usually a building within a village which contains at least one large room, usually owned by and run for the benefit of the local community. Such a hall is typically used for a variety of public and private events, such as parish council meetings, sports club functions, local drama productions, dances, jumble sales and private parties. Village halls sometimes have charitable status. They are occasionally called the village institute rather than village hall or community centres.
