Granby and Sutton parish is mid way between Nottingham and Grantham two miles south of Bingham and the A52 trunk road. The villages of Granby and Sutton are one mile apart in the flat Vale of Belvoir . The land was once part of the estate of the Duke of Rutland who still resides at Belvoir Castle, close by. The parish is part of Rushcliffe Borough, based in West Bridgford, Nottingham
There are around 330 people living in the two villages combined – about 80 in Sutton, and 250 in Granby. Granby has two village pubs – The ‘Marquis of Granby ‘and the ‘Boot and Shoe’. Both of these are definitely worth a visit… or two.
Granby has won ‘Best Kept Village’ (small villages category).

There are approximately 150 properties in the two villages. All Saints Church dates back to the 11th Century and stands in a closed churchyard in the centre of Granby. It consists of a nave, chancel, tower and vestry. The six bells provide a distinctively beautiful peal.
Granby, which is a designated conservation area, still has two popular public houses – the ‘Boot and Shoe’ and the ‘Marquis of Granby’. The Village Hall (formerly the Village School) which serves both villages is the only community hall. It is a Victorian building with fairly high maintenance requirements. It also has a small play area at the rear but this is not well equipped and not well suited to ball games.
There are no shops in Granby or Sutton. Though some provisions that can be purchased: alcohol from the pubs or eggs from the garage! There is a vehicle repairs garage and MoT station. Most children under 11 years travel by bus to attend Orston Primary School.
