.... to Sutton St James Parish
You will find our village in South Lincolnshire
on the East Coast of England.
Our location is about 102 miles
north of London and 3 miles south of the A17 which runs between
Holbeach and Kings Lynn.
The name Sutton St James is from
the Old English Suth+tur or 'Southern Village'.
The area is of marshy fenland which
is drained by the South Holland Main Drain and many smaller canals
which artificially maintain the water level so that the fertile
land can be farmed.
We lie in the heart of the agricultural
and horticulture industries within South Holland and close to Spalding
which is known for its flowers.
whether you are interested in fishing, walking, cycling, bird watching,
camping or you would like a day out in the countryside, then please
pay us a visit.
During your stay you will find that
we are not too far away from places of historic interest or you
may like to visit the local butterfly park or the many garden centres
within the area.
you find yourself driving between the larger towns, why not leave
the main road and enter the rural countryside - you'll be surprised
at what you can find!
