Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Church Road - Sutton

C14 in origin, the church was much rebuilt with additions in C19 by Joseph Clarke. The dormer windows were added in 1914 by HP Burke Downing. The church is constructed in flint with limestone dressings and clay tiled roofs with a tower at the west end. The interior has decorative Victorian wall paintings. It is located south of Carew Manor (now a school) seat of the Carew family from the late middle ages. There is a Carew Chapel where the Richard Carew (d.1520) monument is suffering from cracking and friable stone. The tower exhibits cracking, open joints and past cementitious repairs.
