Scorton is a small 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. It was developed around the cotton mill and railway in the nineteenth century, although there are records of the village and catholic church in Scurton, or Scorton, tracing back to the seventeenth century. It had its own railway station from 1840 until 1939.

Today the village is a popular destination for walkers, cyclists and visitors seeking refreshment at The Priory, The Barn, Daisy Clough Nurseries and Apple Store Cafe at Wyresdale Park. Nearby landmark Nicky Nook is a popular climb, and the fisheries at Wyreside Lake, Wyre Parks Fishery and Cleveley Mere are well worth a visit too.

Scorton is on the banks of the River Wyre and is particularly fortunate in its location, being only a short way from the A6 and yet on the edge of the Forest of Bowland, an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.
