Scroby Sands is a sandbank off the coast of Norfolk, England which runs near shore, north to south from Caister south towards Great Yarmouth. Over the centuries it has witnessed many tragedies and has been home to many shipwrecks.
The area is frequently shown on charts as having three components, named North Scroby, Middle Scroby and South Scroby.
It comprises a large group of shoals with Scroby Sands itself being the largest near shore sandbank in the group. It is deeper and narrower at its northern end and shallower and broader at its southern end.
In 2004 a number of wind turbines were erected here.
