Sutton Scotney is a village in Hampshire, England. It is part of the City of Winchester district, and lies north of Winchester proper.
It lies alongside the River Dever and is now bypassed by the A34 trunk road. It is notable for having been the site of numerous Spitfire crashes in the Second World War.
It has a population of more than 200, and had a watercress-based economy. Its best-known resident was J. Arthur Rank who took the name of the village as part of his title when he was ennobled.
The village pub, the Coach & Horses, dates back to 1762. The pub was recently refurbished and converted the former thatched village Fire station into bed and breakfast rooms - see http://www.activehotels.com/1/1/1260076-coach-horses-sutton-scotney.html
