Sutton Cheney ( , ) is a village in Leicestershiremarker, Englandmarker, close to the location of the Battle of Bosworth Fieldmarker.

Sutton Cheney Wharf on the Ashby Canal gives access to the battlefield and is a tourist destination in its own right. The Wharf is the home of 'The Ashby Trip' who specialise in offering narrowboat rides on the canal and operate a small cafe there.

Sutton Cheney itself has two old Coaching Inns - The Royal Arms and The Hercules. St James' Church here dates back to the 14th Century and it is believed that King Richard III took his last mass here before the Battle of Bosworth [Source: Richard III Society].

The village's clergyman from 1960 to 1986, the Rev. E. R. Boston, was notable as a traction engine and light railway enthusiast and engineer who constructed the now-dismantled Cadeby Light Railway.
