Sutton Gault

Sutton Gault 
Sutton Gault  is a part of the parish of Sutton-in-the-Isle. The name derives from the gault clay that has been extracted from there. The Old Bedford River and New Bedford River pass through Sutton Gault. The land between them, known as the Ouse Washes, often floods and forms part of an internationally important wetland habitat.
Origin of gault
Perhaps of Scandinavian origin; akin to Old Norse gald hard-packed snow
