It has been noted that over a long period of time there has been continuous interest in Scruton History by people who share past family connections with the village. This is very flattering for the village, and shows what an interesting place the village and its resident characters have been for a long period of time.
This website is a first attempt to put together a collection of material which covers a period of history of the past One Hundred and Fifty years.
Although this is basically a pictorial collection, it is intended to add more narrative and refinement over time. All material and information will be gratefully received. See the Contact Us page for more information.
Scruton History.com is a villager's view of the past One Hundred and Fifty years, as seen by one born and raised in the village whilst it was still an estate and had changed little since the 1700's. His ancestors have been present in the village and surrounding area since the middle of the 19th Century, and represent a fair cross section of the type of people living in the village over that period of time.

We have some more photographs and documents to add to the site. Around half of these are available and we're now working on the 1990s.
