Places to Visit
Scrooby will probably only take an hour or two of your time, so here are some recommendations for places to visit in the region around Scrooby.
Footpaths around Scrooby
The best way to see the landscape around Scrooby is to walk. See footpaths for more information.
The King William pub at Scaftworth, a couple of miles drive from Scrooby, is a great country pub. Joe and Becky serve good food and fantastic beer. Open 12:00 - 23:30.
Barrow Hills and Harwell Woods
An SSSI dry sandy hillside landscape with extensive woodland footpaths around this prominant landmark.
Jane Hamlyns Pottery, Everton
A world-famous potter based on our doorstep, at the south east of Everton. There's a small pottery shop next to her kiln and workshop. See janehamlyn.com.
The Dovecot Gallery, Styrrup
If its the run up to Christmas, this local art gallery will be open. Well worth a visit. See www.dovecotgallery.co.uk
Goachers Fruit Farm, North Wheatley
If its summer, it's a real treat to go and pick your own cherries from the tree. Strawberries, raspberries and other soft fruit is also fantastic. See www.goforgoachers.co.uk.
Tuxford WindmillA working windmill which still mills wheat and other grains for sale. The Windmill has a tea room, and you can look around the inside of the mill. The breadmaking course run from the windmill's site is fantastic and well worth attending. See www.tuxford-windmill.co.uk.
