Sutton Coldfield

3.5
The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield, more colloquially known as Sutton Coldfield or simply Sutton, is a town and civil parish in Birmingham, West Midlands, England. The town lies about 7 miles (10 km) northeast of Birmingham City Centre and borders Little Aston, North Warwickshire, Lichfield, Erdington and South Staffordshire. Its 2011 Census population was 95,107 – an increase of 6.7 % since the 2001 Census.Historically in Warwickshire, it became part of Birmingham and the West Midlands metropolitan county in 1974. In 2015, the town elected a Parish/Town Council for the first time in its recent history.An affluent town ranked as the fourth least deprived area in the country encompassing the Four Oaks Park Estate and bordering the Little Aston private estate where the region's multi-millionaire and billionaires reside.HistoryEtymologyThe etymology of the name Sutton appears to be from "South Town". The name "Sutton Coldfield" appears to come from this time, being the "south town" (i.e. south of Tamworth and/or Lichfield) on the edge of the "col field". "Col" is usually derived from "charcoal", charcoal burners presumably being active in the area.
