About Roxby

Roxby village is situated adjacent to the A1077 approximately 4 miles northeast of Scunthorpe. The village along with the hamlets of Risby and Dragonby form the parish of Roxby-cum-Risby.  The village has a long history with evidence in the form of a tessellated pavement from a Roman Villa. Archaeological finds suggest the area had been used in the Neolithic period as well as the Anglo Saxon. The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Roscebi. (We hope to include a history section on this website giving further information in due course.)

Present day Roxby is a quiet pleasant village. The Elwes Estate who originally owned the village have now sold off most of it whilst retaining a few cottages and the farm land. Very few of the present residents are employed in agriculture. We have Anglican and Methodist Churches, the schoolroom of the latter acting in effect as the village hall.

The village is about a mile distant from the small town of Winterton which is well served with a good selection of traders plus Doctor, Pharmacy and Schools.

Roxby is on the main bus route from Scunthorpe to Hull which provides a half hourly service most of the day passing through Winterton, Winteringham and  Barton. As well as the bus service there is a public footpath from Roxby to Winterton (known locally as “the trods”)

Roxby to Winterton Circular Walk

This walk incorporates the new footpath through the landfill site.

About Risby

High and Low Risby and Sawcliffe now comprise a few farmhouses and cottages. These are the sites of 3 Deserted Medieval Villages.  Until 1714 when it was merged with Roxby the parish of Sawcliffe cum Risby had their own church at High Risby.

Risebi and Salecliffe were both mentioned in Domesday and as with Roxby archaeological finds suggest continued occupation for many centuries.

About Dragonby

The modern hamlet of Dragonby reached by a road off the A1077 only dates back to the early 20th Century when houses were built for the workers in the new Ironworks.

However, extensive archaeological work shows that Dragonby (the name although seemingly Viking was invented in 1912) was the site of continued occupation with important finds from the Anglo Saxon and Romano British periods.

Dog fouling – an ongoing problem

The majority of dog owners in Roxby behave responsibly and clean up after their dogs. However, a small minority fail to clean up. This is an offence and North Lincolnshire Council can issue an £80 fixed penalty notice to a dog walker or owner who fails to pick up after their dog has fouled. This can increase to a maximum fine of £1,000 for those who persistently fail to clean up.

Bag it up: Always carry the means to clean up after your dog immediately, and dispose of it in a dog waste bin or a rubbish bin if a dog waste bin is not available. If there isn’t a litter bin, take it home and dispose of it there.

Report dog fouling: We rely on information supplied by the local community to help us to tackle irresponsible dog owners. For more information visit the North Lincolnshire Council website at:
