Scrooby from the Air
Chris Cole writes from InnerVisions. Chris took this aerial photograph of Scrooby in 2000.
You can see clearly the medieval fish ponds between the manor and the railway (the series of large depressions in the grassy area at the top centre of the picture).

Scrooby from the Air
Here's a wonderful view of Scrooby taken by David Thomson of Ranskill using his Go-Pro camera and quadcopter.
Hester Benjamin: Adventures of a Pilgrim Daughter
Scrooby's own Jennie Robbins has published a book for children; a story of friendship, love and adventure, set in Scrooby, England, at the time of the Pilgrim Fathers. A work of fiction for young teenagers based on historical events in the year 1607.
Hester and Mercy are as close as sisters; nothing can come between them. But events are about to shake their peaceful village life to its roots and change things forever. How will their friendship survive when they are forced apart by their families and their faith?
You can buy the e-book for Kindle on Amazon.
