Sutton Lane Ends or Sutton is a semi-rural village and civil parish in the Borough of Macclesfield, Cheshire, England that is situated roughly a mile south of Macclesfield, it includes the hamlets of Gurnett and Jarman. The rivers Bollin and Rosendale run through Sutton Lane Ends, as does the Macclesfield Canal.

The engineer James Brindley (1716-1772) did his apprenticeship in Gurnett in about 1733. A plaque commemorating this fact can still be seen on Plough Cottage.

The population of the entire civil parish is 2,464. [ 2001 census details] Accessed 15 May 2007.] In the past, the community was centred on farming and forestry, but these days most people travel to nearby Macclesfield or Manchester for employment.

Sutton Lane Ends has had an Anglican church since 1840.
