Scorton Village - Scorton is a small rural village situated in Lancashire, England, about 8 miles South of Lancaster and 13 miles North of Preston. Scorton is in the Forest of Bowland and is popular with day visitors, walkers and cyclists.

Scorton meaning farmstead near a ditch or ravine is a village in the parish of Nether Wyresdale, along the road from Garstang. It was developed around the cotton mill and railway in the nineteenth century, although there are records of the village and Catholic Church in Scorton tracing back to the 17C.

Today the village is a popular destination for walkers and cyclists seeking refreshment atThe Priory, together with visitors toThe Barn, Daisy Clough Nurseries and Wyresdale Park. Nearby landmark Nicky Nook is a popular climb and the fisheries at Wyreside Lake and Cleveley Mere are well worth a visit.
