Sutton Cheney Conservation Area

Overview

St James Church Sutton Cheney

The Sutton Cheney Conservation Area was designated by the council in June 1995.

Sutton Cheney is a quiet Leicestershire village lying just off the main Ashby to Hinckley road. Its principal claim to fame is that it is where King Richard III camped and attended his first service, at the church of St James on the eve of the Battle of Bosworth, which took place to the west on Redmore Plain on 22 August 1485.

The village is of great value as an architectural group, with an ensemble of brick built indigenous cottages straddling along Main Street, each side of the Hall, the Church and its Alms houses.
