Mansion House, in Doncaster, South Yorkshire


Doncaster’s elegant Mansion House, a focus for civic pride, has dominated the High Street for over two hundred and fifty years. It is one of only four surviving civic Mansion Houses in the country.

It was started in 1744 to designs by James Paine and took 4 years to complete. William Lindley added more in 1801-6 including the attic and banqueting hall where the St Leger dinner still takes place.

Douglas Ellis Leng from Midland MI USA: Visited the beautiful Mansion House in 1965 and had the mayor's chain of office placed around my neck as my Grandfather was Enoch Ellis, mayor of Doncaster. He died while in office in I believe 1906.
An outstanding experience for me. I was accompanied by my wife and uncle Arnold Leng and his wife Sylvia (of Doncaster).
