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, located on Main Street) and the smaller St. Anne's Church (Sutton's church).

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. Anne's Rectory is now a private house and recently new housing has been built in the former rectory gardens, adjacent to the rear of the church. 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.

A notable feature inside is a 15th-century alabaster effigy of a knight set in a recess."
