  • Scunthorpe - People conjure up images of blast furnaces and steel mills when they think of Scunthorpe but the modern town has much more to offer. The Scunthorpe we know today was formed through the joining of five rural villages, Ashby, Brumby, Crosby, Frodingham and Scunthorpe. Since the steelworks arrived 130 years ago the town has changed beyond all recognition and become more prosperous. British Steel is still the town's major employer but other manufacturers have moved into town, making everything from electronics, food, plastics and clothing. Scunthorpe is a fast developing commercial base and now is the processing headquarters for Lloyd's Bank, with big name companies Ericsson and Canada's CCL Industries all manufacturing for Europe from here. Visitors to the town can expect to see markets, high street shopping facilities, restaurants, pubs, cafes, and two cinemas. The museum on Oswald Road is a popular tourist attraction, and Normanby Hall and Farming Museum, on the outskirts of Scunthorpe, is a brilliant day out for families. Scunthorpe boasts a leisure centre with wave pool, four golf courses, outdoor sports centre Quibell Park and an indoor bowls centre. For a night out, aside from pubs and clubs, visitors can chose between council-owned Baths Hall, a venue for live acts; the Civic Theatre who have a varied programme for the year; and the Plowright Theatre named after the Scunthorpe-born actress Joan. The Scunthorpe Heritage Trail is a circular walk around the town taking in St Lawrence's Church and the New Frodingham Conservation Area. For nature lovers there is the Brumby Common Nature Reserve, or Ridge Walk for ramblers which leads through the limestone escarpment. The industrial island of Scunthorpe is surrounded by attractive rural landscape with small villages, quiet country lanes, footpaths and bridleways. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
