Scrooby is a small village, on the River Ryton and near Bawtry, in the northern part of the English county of Nottinghamshire. At the time of the 2001 census it had a population of 329 [1]Until 1766, it was on the Great North Road so became a stopping-off point for numerous important figures including Queen Elizabeth I and Cardinal Wolsey on their journeys. The latter stayed at the Manor House briefly, after his fall from favour.

The Manor House belonged to the Archbishops of York and at the end of the sixteenth century, was occupied by William Brewster, the Archbishop's bailiff, who was also postmaster. His son, William, took that post in the 1590s after a job as an assistant to the Secretary of State under Queen Elizabeth I. He became dissatisfied with the Anglican Church as it was developing at the time, acquired Brownist beliefs and attempted to leave for the Netherlands in 1607. He eventually went to New England in 1620 on the Mayflower, as one of the people later called Pilgrim Fathers.

The parish church of St Wilfrid has an octagonal spire.[2] Other buildings of interest are the remaining buildings on the site of the former manor house, the mill, the old vicarage, the village's historic farmhouses, and the pinfold. The village stocks were sold to America, more than a hundred years ago.
