- Scotter -
Scotter, which lies either side of the River Eau, is in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside.
The ancient village is centred on a green and overlooked by the medieval St Peter's Church.
Its origins can be traced back to early Anglo-Saxon times, but today it is a busy and popular commuter village, favoured by executives escaping the towns and cities.
Rows of bungalows now stand on what were orchards and violet fields where villagers used to picnic.
But there is still plenty of wildlife to be seen in the area, a little too much some residents would say. Thanks to the close proximity of the River Eau hundreds of ducks roam the village!
Scotter regularly comes tops in the Best Kept Village Competition and Blackwalk Nook, a favourite with walkers, is rated one of its prettiest beauty spots.
The village also boasts a Wesleyan Chapel in the High Street that is still used.
In the heart of the village stands the historic manor house, dating back to the 18th Century, which angry residents saved from demolition in 1991.
And Scotter Village Hall, considered the best in the Scunthorpe area, was officially opened by the Duchess of Gloucester in 1985.
Scotter is situated eight miles from Scunthorpe, off the A159.
