Rotherham
South Yorkshire
Rotherham's proximity to Sheffield makes people overlook the town that once an important Roman settlement as iron ore was mined here. A bridge over the River Don has a a very rare Chantry Chapel where prayers were said for a safe journey. Then there was the Rockingham pottery and later came the coal mines and the siting of the steel and iron works. Steel is still made in the town and celebrated at the Magna Science museum.
