Pursgloves of Sutton in Ashfield - [SUTA]

This area was first settled in Saxon times and appears in Domesday as 'Sotone'.  This area has an agricultural economy, though in later years there have been hosiery mills and stocking knitters.  In the later 20th century, many new industries were introduced as the town has close proximity to key road and rail links.

The parish church is dedicated to St Magdelene and dates from the 14th Century.
