is a civil parish
and a suburb
in the south of the city of Lancaster
. It is home to Scotforth St. Paul's Church of England Primary School and St. Paul's C. of E. Church.
Parts of Lancaster were made up of several villages; Scotforth used to be a separate village. You can still see some of the village's original terraces on parts of Hala Road and Scotforth Road.
Scotforth used to have a Post Office but it closed down, the nearest is now Bowerham post office.
