Arscott is a small hamlet in Shropshire, England. It is near to Plealey, Shorthill and Annscroft and within the civil parish of Pontesbury.[1]

The hamlet is spread out along Pound Lane and has a number of Victorian cottages associated with the local farms or coal mines[2] working as early as 1838, the last closing in 1919.[3]

Nearby is the hamlet of Arscott Villa, which adjoins Annscroft.

There is an 18-hole golf course at Arscott, which opened in 1992 and is the home of the Arscott Golf Club. [4]
