Moving to Sutton Coldfield?

The oldest part of the city of Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield has been inhabited for thousands of years. The ancient woodlands of Sutton Park are home to several prehistoric earth mounds where flint arrowheads and cooking sites have been discovered The Romans used the area mainly for military purposes and it was not until the Saxons took over in the fifth century that a permanent settlement was established. A hunting lodge was built at Maney Hill and a hamlet grew up around it. The lodge gave the hamlet its name: it was known as “Sutton” or “Southun”, meaning “south of Tamworth” (the capital of Mercia), while “Coldfield” denotes an area on the side of a hill that is exposed to the elements.

After the Norman Conquest the area around the village, Sutton Chase, was designated a Royal Forest. It became a market town under the Earl of Warwick in 1300 and prospered until the Wars of the Roses, when the Earl was killed and the town fell into decay. A native son, John Vesey, became the Bishop of Exeter in 1519 and used his influence to rebuild his home town: he revived the market, paved the roads, founded a grammar school that is still among the top in the country and built stone cottages for the poor. Unscathed by the Civil War, Sutton Coldfield was boosted by the Industrial Revolution, Mills were set up along the pools in Sutton Park and on the banks of Ebrook and the manufacture of blades, gun barrels, spades and spade handles as well as the grinding of knives, bayonets and axes further helped the town prosper until it became one of the wealthiest in the area.

The twentieth century saw a boom in housing construction. During the Second World War, Sutton Coldfield was used for prisoner of war camps, which were not popular with locals. In 1974 it became part of the city of Birmingham against the wishes of its population.

Typically of the Midlands, the town has drab weather at best: chilly in winter with summer highs of around 20°C and fairly consistent drizzle year round. This is good for the golf courses: Sutton Coldfield Golf Club is one of the most prestigious in the region, renowned for its winning combination of woodland and heathland. Other popular sports in Sutton Park include mountain biking – Skeleton Hill is especially popular – as well as sailing and canoeing on Powell’s Pool. Nature enthusiasts enjoy the wide variety of trees, birds and animals – Exmoor ponies roam free here and there is also a donkey sanctuary. Roads have restricted access, making the ancient forest a wonderful walking destination.

In the town proper, visit Holy Trinity Church, which is over seven hundred years old, and the adjacent Vesey Memorial Gardens. The Church of All Saints in Four Oaks, designed by Charles Bateman in 1902, is an excellent example of Arts and Crafts style. There are several other Bateman churches around the town. For such a small place, there is also a surprising number of stately homes dotted around. Of especial interest are the double-moated Peddimore Hall; and Moat House, designed by William Wilson, a student of Christopher Wren.
