About Sotterley

A small settlement dominated by masses of parkland surrounding the 18th cent. hall and village church. The current hall, Satterley Manor, replaced an earlier building (Old Satterley Hall) that was destroyed by fire in 1744. It is said that Lord Nelson's flagship "Victory" was made from Satterlee oak trees. All other village properties are scattered outside this parkland which is roughly circular and about 5km in circumference. A Deserted Mediaeval Village is thought to have existed to the south west of the park.

Sotterley was recorded in Domesday as "Soterlega".
