Public Access

The Scawby Estate features a variety of public rights of way within the parish of Scawby.

In addition, the estate provides for permissive access in the following areas:

1) Residents of the parish of Scawby (including Greetwell, Sturton and Scawby Brook) may apply for a permit to walk and fish around the woods and private lakes in Scawby Park that can be reached from the public footpath running through the park. Please apply for a permit at the Estate Office (a £10 donation to St Hybald's Church, Scawby, or Unicef is suggested). We regret that because the estate does not provide parking, permits are not available to non-residents. You can download an application form here.


2) A partnership between North Lincolnshire Council and the Estate provides for public access to parts of the Lakes and Woodland in Twigmoor, where parking is available. Please note that camping, fires and cycles are not permitted, and dogs should be kept on leads so as not to disturb wildlife. Walkers should also keep to signed paths.

3) The Estate has made the woodland at Primrose Hill available to North Lincolnshire Scouts for use as a campsite. Scouting groups, as well as other groups with a religious, charitable or educational purpose, may be able to book the site, though the woods are not open to the general public.
