Sutton Church - but which Sutton?

By Pauline Marples

This post card was posted in Hinckley in June 1902 and sent to a lady in Leicester. However the post card dealer who sold it wrote on in pencil NOTTS.  As there are many places called Sutton to be found in the atlas can anyone clarify where this 'Sutton Church' is?

Unfortunately the dealer got it wrong. It is St. Clements Church, Sutton-on-Sea, Lincolnshire (1819). A pity it isn't in Notts, as it seems an attractive Strawberry Hill Gothick building - they have to keep putting up new churches there because the earlier ones fall into the sea...
