New homes in Rotherham

New homes in Rotherham

Welcome to Rotherham

From parkland to museums, shopping centres and castles, Rotherham is a large and action-packed town with lots to see in the local area. If you’re looking to live in a place with first-rate transport links, great employment opportunities and a friendly local community, a new home in Rotherham could be the right choice for you.

A quick history

Rotherham dates back to the Roman times when a fort was built alongside the river. After the Romans had left Britain the town was abandoned, but it was re-populated by the Angles and by the 13th century, Rotherham was the size of a small town.

During the English Civil War in the 1600s, Rotherham was occupied by the Royalists. By the end of the century and into the 1700s the town’s iron industry began growing quickly, especially after the new canal opened in 1740 which significantly boosted trade.

Rotherham had a population boom during the Industrial Revolution thanks to the success of steel manufacturing in the town. The steelworks made Rotherham a target during the Second World War, and around 140 bombs were dropped on the town over the course of the war.

Business and industry

Although the traditional manufacturing industry declined in Rotherham during the 20th century, the town is still home to a number of big employers including C.F. Booth, A.E.S Engineering and AMG Superalloys UK. New York Bakery Company and recruitment firm Nicholas Associates are also based in the town, while major employers in nearby Sheffield include SIG PLC, EVO Business Supplies, Insight Direct (UK), Go Outdoors, Topco and Irwin Mitchell LLP.

Things to do in the area

Rotherham is home to a number of cultural sights, from the impressive architecture of Rotherham Minster to Boston Castle, the South Yorkshire Transport Museum and Clifton Park Museum. There are also lots of popular shopping spots, including Parkgate Shopping and Meadowhall Shopping Centre.

If you’re moving to Rotherham with children in tow, they’ll love visiting the Magna Science Adventure Centre where they can get hands-on with interactive exhibits and experiments. At Clifton Park there’s an outdoor pool and play area, and Minster Gardens in the centre of the town hosts open-air events throughout the year.

If you enjoy getting active, the Peak District National Park is only a short drive away from Rotherham, while The Grange Golf Club and Rotherham Golf Club are ideal for a leisurely weekend round. After dark there’s entertainment at Rotherham Civic Theatre, with performances spanning musicals, children’s theatre and live music.

Travel and commuting

Rotherham has good transport links, ideal if you’re commuting to and from neighbouring towns and cities. The M1 and M18 motorways are both nearby, and the train station has regular services to Sheffield. The journey to Sheffield takes around 10 minutes by train or 20 minutes by car, while Doncaster is 25 minutes away by train or 30 minutes by car. 

Travelling further afield, Manchester can be reached in one hour 10 minutes by either car or train with just one change if you travel by rail, while the direct train to Leeds takes one hour or 40 minutes by car.

If you’re travelling abroad for business or pleasure, Doncaster Sheffield Airport is only a 30-minute drive away.
