Sutton, West Sussex
Blocked off at the south by the mass of the South Downs and only approachable from other directions by means of winding country lanes, if you want peace and quiet, then Sutton's the place for you.
Sutton is worth visiting.
The village has a good pub - The White Horse - and fine walking country all around.
Sutton Church St John's the Baptist, Sutton is a large church which has been altered and added to throughout the centuries. The oldest parts of Sutton Church are 11th century.
Coates Castle SSSIIn the north of the parish of Sutton, the grounds of Coates Castle are a Site of Special Scientific Interest because they contain the last known UK population of a type of field cricket - these crickets are black with a brown or yellow patch at the base of the wings - so watch where you put your size 9s.
You might be squashing the last ever field cricket in the land. Things are looking up for the field crickets however. Apparently there are plenty of them in the rest of Europe.
Other known UK habitats of this species of cricket have been changed by man - into woodland or, in one case, into an oil refinery. The extent of the problem facing these creatures was only identified in 1991 and since then plans have been put in place to help them spread to other suitable UK sites - including one at Arundel.
