Scunthorpe History


A predominantly industrial town, it is the United Kingdom’s largest steel processing centre and is also known as the “Industrial Garden Town”. 

It is the third largest settlement in Lincolnshire, after Lincoln and Grimsby.

In 2016, it was reported that Scunthorpe had an estimated total population of 82,334. Way back in 1851 Scunthorpe only had a population of 1,245 residents. In 1941, this had grown to 45,840 residing in the area.

As Scunthorpe expanded, it included the former villages of the town, Frodingham, Ashby, Crosby, Bottesford and Brumby. In 1891, the city was officially considered an urban district. In 1919, it merged as ‘Scunthorpe, Brumby and Frodingham Urban District’ before becoming a municipal borough in 1936.

Scunthorpe appears in the Domesday Book, and it was called Escumesthorpe. This word came from the Old Norse Skumasþorp which means Skuma’s homestead. Furthermore, this is a site believed to be located in the centre of Scunthorpe that is close to the location of Market Hill today.
