SCOTTOW is a parish and scattered village, part of which is on the high road from North Walsham to Norwich, 9 miles north-east from Norwich, 5 south from North Walsham and 2 west from Worstead station, in the Northern division of the county, South Erpingham hundred, Aylsham union and county court district, rural deanery of Ingworth and archdeaconry and diocese of Norwich. The church of All Saints is of flint, and stands rather high; it has chancel, nave, aisles, and south porch, loft square embattled tower, fine east window, also an excellent organ presented by the late Sir H. E. Durrant bart. in 1844. The register dates from the year 1561. The living is a vicarage, tithe rent-charge 230 with 17 acres of glebe and house, in the gift of the Bishop of Norwich, and held since 1872 by the Rev. John Tyrwhitt Walker B.A. of Trinity College, Dublin. The impropriated rectorial tithes of Scottow were commuted for 500 and an allotment of 21A. 2R. 16P. was awarded to the poor at the enclosure in 1831. At the back of the Horsehoe public house a room has been built 100 feet long and 27 feet broad, for the meeting of members of the Odd Fellows, Manchester Unity. Scottow Hall, the seat of Lady Durrant, is a handsome building with two wings, standing in an extensive and well-wooded park. The representatives of the late Sir Henry Josias Durrant are lords of the manor and chief landowners. The soil of this neighbourhood is rich and well cultivated; the subsoil, principally of brick earth. The number of acres is 275; rateable value 3,791; and the population in 1881 was 430.
