Sutton Park :: SP1196

Sutton Park occupies over 2,000 acres to the north of Birmingham and immediately west of Sutton Coldfield town centre. It includes heathland, woodland, wetland and marshes and has seven lakes. It was originally established as a royal forest by the Anglo-Saxon Kings of Mercia and became a deer park in Norman times. The park was given to the people of Sutton Coldfield in 1528 by the King at the behest of Bishop John Vesey and is currently managed by Birmingham City Council. It has been designated as a National Nature Reserve by English Nature.
