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.

The works are currently programmed to commence on 22nd Feb and last for2 consecutive weekends

Please note these works are part of an extensive programme and as a consequence it is possible that some adjustment to this start date or the duration of the works may be necessary should unforeseen circumstances (such as significant weather events or emergencies on the highway network arise)

The road closure and works will be carried out between the hours of 0700 – 1900.This may inevitably restrict vehicular access to businesses directly affected but our contractors will try to assist you where possible during the working day through the use of on-site personnel tasked with managing access.Pedestrian access will be permitted. We request your assistance in the following ways:

Please make arrangements to store your vehicle at an alternative location.

Please cooperate and comply with any instructions issued by the traffic management operatives
and take extra care whilst within the works area.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any disruption that these works may cause and would again request your cooperation to help ensure an efficiently and safely executed project.

Yours faithfully
