Did you know that Sutton Park once had a zoo?

Look at this map of Sutton Park from 1890. Can you see the name ‘Crystal Palace’?

Known as The Royal Zoological Gardens, the zoo was located in the Crystal Palace Grounds in Sutton Park. This Zoo was in existence for 10 years from 1900 to 1910 but the actual building was not demolished until 1962.

              

In its grounds, vistors could see monkeys, lions, camels and kangaroos. This was a great success when the sun was shining, but English summers have always had bad days, so there needed to be attractions under cover. The Crystal Palace was built, capable of sheltering 1500 persons, with refreshment rooms and even hotel apartments.  Your task is to imagine the zoo still exists. Create a poster to encourage people to visit.

Did you know that Sutton Coldfield is a royal town?

 

Have you ever noticed these signs up around Sutton Coldfield and wondered why they were there?

In 1528 King Henry VIII (the 8th) granted Sutton Coldfield a ‘Charter of Incorporation’ naming it a Royal Town thanks to the influence of Tudor churchman Bishop Vesey, who was born in Sutton Coldfield and became Henry VIII's chaplain and later Bishop of Exeter.

 

Did you know our famous Sutton Park has a history too?

 

Sutton Park was a former medieval deer park that was gifted to locals by Henry VIII and today still carries on a long tradition of being a haven for nature.

Originally established as a Royal Forest by the Anglo Saxon kings of Mercia, from their seat at Tamworth in around the 9th century , it had become a Norman deer park by the early 12th century .  Just some of the discoveries to provide evidence of the park’s past include flint arrowheads, Roman coins, prehistoric burnt mounds, an ancient well, ancient tumulus, earthworks of an ancient encampment and part of a Roman Road

Compare these maps of Sutton Park from modern day and the 1890s.

What do you know about the history town of Sutton Coldfield?

 

Did you know the name "Sutton Coldfield" appears to mean 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.

 

Sutton Coldfield is steeped in history and its buildings tell the story of our town.

Did you know for example that the Royal Hotel on High Street used to be called The Old Swan Hotel and was actually a private home built in the mid 1700s? Or that there is an old workhouse on Mill Street that was built in 1739 to comply with Poor Laws? Or that the current Town Hall also used to be the old fire station? (The clock tower was used to hang the hosepipes of the fire service!)
