Sutton Mandeville is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England. The village lies off the A30 road in the Nadder valley between the city of Salisbury in Wiltshire and the town of Shaftesbury in neighbouring Dorset. On a more local basis it is between Fovant parish on the east and Tisbury on the west. The parish includes the hamlets of Lower Chicksgrove and Sutton Row. Until 1986 Sutton Mandeville was part of Tisbury ecclesiastical parish.
