Welcome to our village

Scorton is a small village situated near Richmond, North Yorkshire, England. The name ‘Scorton’ is believed to date from Anglo-Saxon times and is thought to mean ‘Short Tun’, as opposed the nearby village of Langton or ‘Long Tun’ (Tun = Old English for Homestead). The main feature of our village is its raised green – one of only two in England. The green is also host to our annual feast, the roots of which date back to 1257.

Scorton was the first village with its own website which was launched back in 1998 – that’s over 20 years on the Internet! The site has been through many incarnations since those days – feel free to drop us a line and let us know what you think of this one.
