Scawby is a village and civil parish in North Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 2 miles (3 km) south-west from Brigg, and just east from the A15 road, and south from the M180 motorway. According to the 2001 Census, Scawby population was 2,277.
Sturton was formerly a separate hamlet a little to the south of Scawby, but development of the land between the two has incorporated the settlement into the main village. Scawby Brook, situated to the east just outside Brigg, is also partly within the parish. Also in the parish, to the west of the main village, is the roadside hamlet of Greetwell on the B1398 road.
The church of St Hybald is dedicated to a 7th-century Saxon of that name. It is built in the Early English style, but was substantially rebuilt in 1843 by William Adams Nicholson, and in 1870 by James Fowler of Louth. The tower is original, of the 15th century, with 13th-century work at the base.
An old school building is next to the church. There is a village pump, telephone box, a post office and village shop, a primary school, the Sutton Arms public house, a fish and chip shop and a newsagent.
The village hall committee dates back to March 1921, when it was agreed to purchase a hut for community use in the village. In 1967 this was replaced by a brick building with views of open countryside.
