Factoid   

Did you know..

In past years there were two Friendly Societies or Sick Clubs, usually known as The Club, which were run from The Bell Inn and the Three Tuns pubs (both now closed) The Club Feast was held on Whit Monday when members paraded with a brass band to the Church for an 11am service. The vicar was paid a golden sovereign for his sermon and invited to the Annual Meeting and Dinner at The Bell. The custom of the Feasts ceased in 1912.

More Details  
 

                                                         
The village of King's Sutton ( The place name means the King's south estate.) lies at the southernmost tip of Northamptonshire and the border of Oxfordshire. We have great transport links by both road and rail to London, Oxford and Birmingham as well as being close to the Oxford Canal. For the discerning tourist we are easily within range of Warwick, Stratford and all that the Cotswolds has to offer. Historically wealthy, we take great pride in the Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul, the legend of St Rumbold dating back to 662, our very own natural bog spring and the Astrop Spa, discovered in 1664.  (See our History Archive for a wealth of further information)

Spotlight on...  
Factoids.......Always shown opposite, these factoids are all taken from the book about King's Sutton which was published in 1993.  It opens with the rhyme...                                                               King's Sutton is a pretty town,
                                                       And lies all in a Valley.
                                                       There is a pretty ring of bells,
                                                       Besides a bowling alley.
                                                       Wine and liquor in good store,
                                                       Pretty maidens plenty.
                                                       Can a man desire more?
                                                       There aint such a town in twenty.
