Scawby Village Website
Scawby is a rural village in North Lincolnshire with a population of around 3000 residents. It is situated just 2 miles south-west of the market town of Brigg, the parish includes Greetwell to the west and Scawby Brook to the east. The historic character of Scawby has been successfully maintained with 18th century cottages, long established stone walls and the beautiful church of St Hybald. The almshouses, village pump and the forge together with mature trees give the centre of the village a rural appearance that is truly unique.
The centre of the village is usually bustling with people, the post office is always busy, the popular fish and chip shop brings people in from a wide area and the Sutton Arms is a thriving hostelry. We now have a Lincolnshire Co-op food store which opened in April 2019.
There is always something happening at the village hall; regular weekly activities include indoor bowls, dancing and kurling.
Scawby is a pretty village and the flowerbeds are always colourful, tulips, daffodils and primroses make a spectacular display in springtime followed by geraniums, marigolds and begonias in the summer. Tubs and baskets bring extra splashes of colour to the bus shelters and the village pump and they are cared for by people who live close by. This is very much appreciated by everyone and promotes a sense of pride in the village.
