Clutton was recorded in the Domesday survey as Clutone.

It was given by William the Conquerer to his favourite, the Bishop of Coutance. In Edward III’s reign in the 14th century, it is mentioned as being left by Robert Gyere to John de Greville by payment of a ‘rose’. This John de Greville was an ancestor of the Earls of Warwick, whose association with Clutton continued through the centuries until just after the Second World War.

Now the only visible links with the Warwick family are the foundation stone at the village school, the inscription on the church organ, and The Warwick Arms inn.
