In the 19th century there was a cotton mill in the village and the village had a railway station on the West Coast Main Line from 1841 until 1939. The village has three churches, one pub (Stouts Bar, at the Priory Hotel), and is home to The Barn garden centre, gift shop, cafe and restaurant, the Bowland Grill, which is open at weekend and all week in the summer season. The annual Scorton Steam show takes place on Fathers' Day weekend in June each year.
The hills around include the much walked Nicky Nook on the edge of the Forest of Bowland area.
