For this church:
West Bingham Deanery
No church is mentioned here in Domesday.
This small stone church serving Sutton is set back from the road on a hillside. It is Early English and consists of a chancel, a nave of three bays, north aisle, north vestry, south porch and west bellcote with two bells.
The earliest parts are 13th century. These are the north arcade with circular and octagonal piers and moulded capitals, and the aisle belonging to it. The chancel cannot be much later judging by one of its windows. The nave must be early 14th century.
In a recess in the chancel is an alabaster effigy of a knight in armour, c1475 with Yorkist collar of suns and roses, feet resting on a lion. Thoroton suggests it was of a member of the Staunton family.
