Sutton-in-Craven is a village and civil parish in the Craven district of North Yorkshire, England that is situated in the Aire Valley between Skipton and Keighley. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in 2001 the population was 3,480. The village is adjacent to Glusburn and Cross Hills, but although these three effectively form a small town, Sutton village maintains its distinct identity.
From 1894 until 1938 Sutton-in=Craven was a civil parish within Keighley Rural District. When the rural district was abolished the parish was transferred to the neighbouring Skipton Rural District to the north. In 1974 when the West Riding of Yorkshire was divided between West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and the southwestern part of North Yorkshire, Sutton-in-Craven was absorbed into the Craven District of North Yorkshire.
