During the 1760's the Suttons pulled down Edward Cludd's house and erected the present mansion you see today.
At that time Norwood Park comprised of around 30 rooms, domestic offices, a brew-house, granary, bottle, flow, bakehouse, slaughterhouse, stables, coach house, dog kennels and cow yard.
The Suttons also landscaped the Park, erecting the Temple, developing two more fish ponds and planting the Lime Avenue.
After more than 100 years of residence, the Sutton family moved from Norwood Park and leased it to a variety of tenants including the Marquis of Carmarthen (Duke of Leeds), Lord Edwin Hill and Mr Dashwood Fane.
Later, Mr Chambers, a consummate entertainer purchased Norwood Park whereupon it became renowned as an "archiepiscopal of hospitality".
The house was filled with exquisite furniture, art, and wealthy guests.
