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.
