A town in north Lincolnshire, England, close to the Humber estuary. Almost non-existent until the discovery of iron ore in 1859, Scunthorpe and neighbouring towns grew rapidly to become one of the world's major steel-producing towns. With the decline of the British steel industry Scunthorpe has become less important to the British economy and now relies on tourism as much as anything else.

The town occasionally hits internet notoriety when its websites and citizens get blocked by various censorship programs:
