Sutton Arms

Picture source: T C


 

The Sutton Arms was situated at 193 Caledonian Road. Now used as a restaurant.
 
In the early 1900s the pub was the starting point for a race for a group of Great Northern Railway men who worked out of King's Cross. It was approximately 5.3 miles finishing at Noel Park Station, Wood Green (now under Shopper's City). It was known as 'London's newest marathon'. All the participents had nick names, my Granddad (b1888) who won it was the Ginger Chicken. I was amazed to find it is now called the Marathon Restaurant, I wonder if the story had been passed on.
