Sutton is a small hamlet in the Vale of Glamorgan, just south of Llandow.

History[edit]

Sutton was once home to the Turbervill family, and Edward Turbervill once had his seat at Sutton.[1]A Bronze Age barrow has been unearthed in Sutton.[2][3]In 1940, Sir Cyril Fox was said to have found "a primary burial of a typical Beaker man, crouched in a large pit cut into the subsoil, with a Beaker of debased 'B1' type and barbed and tanged flint arrow-heads."[4]

Notable landmarks[edit]

It contains three listed buildings, Sutton Farmhouse which is Grade II* listed and the "Long Range of Outbuildings to Northwest of Sutton Farmhouse" and "Small Outbuilding immediately to West of Sutton Farmhouse" which are Grade II listed. [5]Nearby is Llandow Industrial Estate and Springfield Nurseries, a major supplier of pot Chrysanthemums to the UK market.

A 5 bedroom mansion in Sutton named The Granary was valued at £730,000 as of August 2011, making it amongst the most expensive properties in the county.[6]
