Project Overview


The aim of this project is to tell the story of Sutterby - to research the past, to record the present and to give Sutterby a future through its past. 

For Sutterby, the chance to regain its social and historical landscape.
For those involved in the project, a chance to learn, explore, unearth, research, create & record.


There are four strands to explore :-


  • the church: its history and architecture

  • the churchyard: its gravestones and families

  • the village: its echoes of a medieval past, glimpsed now through grassy humps and ploughed fields

  • the natural history: discover the present and develop the future


Each strand is dealt with as a sub-project overseen by a steering group, manned by volunteers and co-ordinated by a volunteer with the guidance of professionals.


  • produce an in-depth research report & short readable narrative,

  • create a website & photographic gallery,

  • develop a wildlife friendly churchyard,

  • form a 'Friends of Sutterby' group.
