Scarcroft Then and Now: a History of the Village

Scarcroft has not previously had its history recorded and we look forward to the new book Scarcroft Then and Now: a History of the Village, due out in early December.

Written by two authors, Olav Arnold and Lionel Scott, who lived in the village for many years, it covers the origin of the village from Saxon times onwards, but also highlights the activities of its many clubs and societies. With 12 maps and over 100 photographs, it includes a record of life in Scarcroft as remembered by older residents.

Between them, the authors lived in Scarcroft for 100 years.  Lionel Scott concentrates on history from the earliest times to the present day, and Olav Arnold, a past chairman of the Parish Council, takes you on a tour of the village as well as describing events and village societies.  A final chapter sets out the reminiscences of former inhabitants of life in the early part of the last century.

 Available from the Thorner Shop and Post Office, Collingham Post Office. the Half Moon, the New Inn, the Bingley Arms, and Sandra Thompson (Berry Brow, Wetherby Road, Scarcroft),

 Price £10. Net proceeds in aid of Scarcroft Village Hall
