Welcome to Sutton-in-Craven

Sutton-in-Craven Parish is located five miles south-east of Skipton. It is one of the most southerly parishes in Craven, bordering the county of West Yorkshire.

Sitting in a cleft of the Pennines, the village is surrounded on three sides by hills which rise sharply to around 1,000 feet, Falling from these hills is Sutton Beck which runs through the village into Holme Beck, eventually joining the River Aire near Kildwick.

Sutton-in-Craven is a vibrant community with shops, businesses, good schools, churches, village hall, community centre, and leisure facilities such as the cricket ground and the park which acts as a strong focal point. 

The village has a strong sense of community and identity which we wish to preserve.
