Description and Travel

Scotter is a parish due south of the conurbation of Scunthorpe and which sits nine miles northeast of Gainsborough. The parish of Messingham lies to the north, Scotton parish to the south. The parish covers about 5,400 acres and includes the hamlets of Scotterthorpe, Susworth (on the Trent River), Cotehouses (now virtually gone) and Woodhouse.

The picturesque village lies south of the the M180 motorway. The A159 trunk road cuts through the heart of the village. The small river Eau passes through the village and just north of Scotterthorpe.

The hamlets of Susworth and Cotehouses (also given as "Gotchouses") are on the River Trent west-northwest of the village of Scotter.
