Great Sutton is a village, in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It is in the town of Ellesmere Port, and as with Little Sutton to the north, it was once a separate village which was incorporated into Ellesmere Port as it expanded outwards.

Mentioned in the Domesday Book as part of the parish of Eastham in the Wirral Hundred,[1][2] Great Sutton became part of Ellesmere Port civil parish in 1950. The population was 153 in 1801, 203 in 1851 and 397 in 1901.[3]

Great Sutton is a residential area in close proximity to the A41 road that links Birkenhead and Chester. Dating back to about 1850 is the 'White Swan Inn' public house. Consecrated in November 1879, the Church of St John the Evangelist is located on Chester Road (A41).[4]

The village was struck by an F1/T3 tornado on 23 November 1981, as part of the record-breaking nationwide tornado outbreak on that day.[5]
