Feeding the families of Scunthorpe since 2016

Taylor’s Butcher’s has been trading in the industrial town of Scunthorpe since 2016. Opening the first shop on Ashby High Street, Taylor’s quickly grew in popularity and soon had a reputation for delivering quality meat and other products including cakes and pastries. Now, Taylor’s also has a spot in St John’s Market within Scunthorpe town center. 

Scunthorpe is situated within North Lincolnshire and is best known for its Steelworks. Scunthorpe is one of the largest steel manufacturers in the country.  It is also the third largest settlement in Lincolnshire after Grimsby and Lincoln. 

Scunthorpe has a coat of arms that represents all aspects of the town. The shield is green with a golden wheatsheaf that represents the agricultural history of Scunthorpe. The chain across the centre of the shield represents the five villages that link together to form the town –  Crosby, Scunthorpe, Frodingham, Brumby & Ashby. At the top of the shield are two devils toenails fossils (Gryphaea incurva). These were commonly found in the rock strata that the ironstone was quarried from. At the top is a blast furnace, which represents the steelmaking activities. 


Scunthorpe has a rich sporting history, with the Football team, known locally as The Iron, who play at Glanford Park. Scunthorpe United has spent some time playing in the Championship and has seen football stars such as Kevin Keegan and Ray Clemence playing for them as well as former England cricket captain Ian Botham having played a number of games for the club too. 

Scunthorpe Rugby club can be seen playing at Heslam Park. The team have played in the fourth tier of the English Rugby Union system.

Having won a grand slam of the Conference League trophies in 2006 and 2007, they went on to claim the Premier League title in 2012. World champion Tai Woffinden was also born in Scunthorpe, riding for Scunthorpe Scorpians during his youth. 

The town also has a couple of athletics clubs and an American Football team the Scunthorpe Alphas. There’s no shortage of teams to join if sport is your thing.
