A quick history

Scunthorpe was mentioned in the Domesday Book, but it wasn’t until the mid 19th century that the town grew thanks to the local iron industry. As the population boomed during the following century, Scunthorpe absorbed many surrounding rural villages including Ashby and Bottesford. To this day, Scunthorpe is still a key player in the UK iron and steel industry.
