suttons manor



Publication design for Metal Culture as part of Estuary 2021. Writers Amina Atiq, Season Butler, Alison Moore, and Martha Pailing were commissioned to respond to one of the most mysterious and enigmatic houses of the Thames Estuary - Suttons Manor.

“Suttons Manor is one of the oldest houses in Southend. It was built in 1681 but now stands dilapidated in grandeur, proud and isolated behind perimeter fencing on MOD land at Shoeburyness. As a Grade II* listed structure, the house is protected heritage, but its situation means it is beyond the reach of public attention and use. Not many people even know the house is there and very little information exists in the public realm about the history of the house.”

Designed as a double pamphlet with a concertina cover, to accomodate both the writings and historical background, while keeping these separate to convey the mysterious history of Suttons Manor.
