Doncaster Brings Oldest Goldfish, Flushing Toilets And Westminster Cathedral

Doncaster dates back to the Roman era, when it was known as Danum. Since then, a lot has happened in the Yorkshire town.

Not only was it home to the world’s oldest goldfish, but the man credited with popularising the modern flushing toilet was born in the area.

John Francis Bentley, an architect whose most famous work is Westminster Cathedral, was also born in Doncaster. More recently and somewhat less illustriously, the town has been called home by former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson.

Known for its strong logistics links, Doncaster is well placed on the UK’s motorway infrastructure being close to the M1, M18, M62, M180, and A1(M). Doncaster emerged as an industrial centre in the late 18th century to 20th century, and today has a number of major distribution centres, including Doncaster International Railport which dispatches goods to Europe.
