King's Sutton is one of the larger villages of Northamptonshire, situated at the far southwest tip of the county in the valley of the River Cherwell, which marks its border with Oxfordshire. Lying some four miles (6.4km) south-east of the market town of Banbury, the village is roughly 10 minutes’ drive from both junctions 10 and 11 of the M40 motorway, which runs through the valley to the west criss-crossing the mainline railway and the Oxford Canal.
Living in one of only two villages in Northamptonshire with a railway station, King’s Sutton residents can travel by train to London in just under an hour-and-a-half, Birmingham in under an hour and Oxford in under half-an-hour. Regular weekday bus services link the village to the nearby towns of Banbury, Brackley and Bicester, which in turn provide good connections to further-flung towns and cities such as Oxford, Northampton and Milton Keynes.
Besides excellent transport links, King's Sutton residents benefit from local shops, a doctor’s surgery, a post office, a primary school, two churches and three public houses. These institutions, along with the wide range of clubs, organisations and activities operating in the village, are detailed in these pages.
King’s Sutton is close to the M40 motorway, which provides fast road links to Oxford, Birmingham and London. It is also one of only two villages in the county of Northamptonshire to boast a railway station, which is served by First Great Western and Chiltern Railways trains to London Paddington, London Marylebone, Birmingham Snow Hill, Oxford and the rest of the national rail network.
