"In Victorian times Doncaster Gate was one of the places to be in Rotherham. Running from the crossroads of High Street, Wellgate and College Street it climbs quite steeply uphill to the old Doncaster Road. Just up the hill there are many fine houses of stone or brick which were once family homes for the rather better off. Those for which I have been able to trace a date of building appear to be late Victorian. Most of these are now offices with the odd doctors or dental surgery."
