Scorton is a small village near the River Wyre, in the Wyre district of Lancashire. It is located north of Garstang. The name means "farmstead near a ditch or ravine". In the 19th century there was a cotton mill in the village and the village had a railway station on the West Coast Main Line from 1841 until 1939. The village has three churches, one pub (Stouts Bar, at the Priory Hotel), and is home to The Barn garden centre, gift shop, cafe and restaurant, the Bowland Grill, which is open at weekend and all week in the summer season.

The annual Scorton Steam show takes place on Fathers' Day weekend in June each year.

The hills around include the much walked Nicky Nook on the edge of the Forest of Bowland area.

Scorton is home to the Bikes and Barrows Festival, which started in 2011. This event takes place each May Day bank holiday weekend.

St. Peters Church, built 1878–79, one of three churches in the village, has a special family grave set up for the Farnworth and Metcalfe family, by James Metcalfe in the late 1950s.

Wyresdale Hall, built 1856–58, is one mile north-east and was built for the Ormerod family of Bolton.
