Doncaster Mansion House Council Chamber
Doncaster is traditionally very wealthy. The borough itself was known for its
rich landowners with vast estates and huge stately homes such as
Hickleton Hall and
Cusworth Hall. This wealth is evidenced in the luxurious and historic gilded
18th century Mansion House which stands on High Street. This land ownership
developed what is an ancient market place and large 19th century Market Hall and
Corn Exchange buildings.
