Tudor Hill

B73 - Grid reference SP116965

 

 

 

North-west of the High Street at Sutton Coldfield town centre, the hill is shown on the Ordnance Survey map of 1889. A street of the same name forms the basis of a housing estate overlooking Sutton Park. The name could be a 19th-century concoction emphasising the link between Sutton Coldfield and King Henry VIII.
