The area surrounding Doncaster has a rich history that is linked to the Normans, our readers share their photos of this important part of South Yorkshire.

The market town of Doncaster is dominated by the 19th century St George’s Minster which has origins to Norman times.

The grounds of Brodsworth Hall which is just to the north and Cusworth Hall which is located near Sprotbrough are well worth a visit for a walk around the grounds.

The 11th century Conisbrough Castle in the Dearne Valley is an important historical landmark and Tickhill, which also has a castle of the same period is a popular place for history enthusiasts.

Further afield, the nearby market towns of Bawtry and Thorne are pretty stop off points for those looking to explore this area of South Yorkshire.
