Sutton Masonic Hall was built in 1897 by a group of local Freemasons. During the Second World War the Hall was requisitioned by the military for 2 years and was used as a 'rest centre' and 'temporary shelter' by families displaced from their homes. It was returned to the owners in 1947.
In 1948 there were some 27 units of various orders meeting at the centre. Today there are 89 units of various Masonic Orders using the centre for their meetings.
