Long Description:
Sutton Bonington has two medieval churches, a result of the merging of the two original villages (Sutton and Bonington); they are St. "Michael's Church (Bonington's church) and St Anne's Church (Sutton's church, located down St Anne's Lane). St Michael's is the larger (and much taller) of the two churches.

The two ancient ecclesiastical parishes of Sutton and Bonington were united for civil purposes in 1829 and combined in 1923 into one ecclesiastical parish (with one rector appointed from 1950). St. Michael's Rectory, situated on the other side of the Midland Main Line, is now used by the University of Nottingham, who have a large campus just north of the village, to house postgraduate students. Related to the situation of the two original parishes, Sutton and Bonington are separate manors, named after their churches — St. Anne and St. Michael respectively."
