Sutton Cock Sign being restored

by Ruth, Marlene, and Steve on 17 March, 2020

The famous Sutton High Street Crossroads cockerel sign is currently being restored and will return again next month.

The Grade II listed landmark’s history originates in a public house called ‘The Cock’ and owned by Gentleman Jackson (1769-1845). The Cock pub sported a sign which hung from a timber goal-post straddling Sutton High Street.

The work is part funded by Historic England as part of the Sutton Town Centre Heritage Action Zone.

Says Cllr Steve Penneck: “We are delighted to have the Sutton High Street Crossroads sign restored to its former glory. 

“The works will help to enhance the high street’s rich history and align with our ambitious plans to preserve the landmarks which make Sutton such a special place”.
