The Gateway in Scampton House Field was built as the grand entry to Scampton Hall.

It was built for Sir John Bolle around 1603, but, following the demolition of the Hall, it now stands lonely in a field.

The tower of St John the Baptist Church is 14th century.

Much of the interior dates from 1876/7, though the chancel arch and the N aisle windows (seen here) are 16th century.

RAF Scampton is nearby, and the churchyard contains about 100 military graves. Many are the graves of allied aircrew who died during WW2.

Also here are the graves of several German airmen.

The west tower was probably rebuilt in the late Georgian period along with much of the rest of the church.

The Dambusters Inn on the High Street has displays relating to 617 Squadron and is well worth a visit. Nearby RAF Scampton is home to the Red Arrows.

This view looks up the village street in a northerly direction.
