Obviously generic gold fish thrive in Doncaster. Tish - at 43 years of age - the oldest goldfish in the world that had been won at a fair in 1956 at Doncaster, sank peacefully to the bottom of his fish bowl in 1999. RIP
Doncaster, a large market town located about 30 km from Sheffield, is known for a few curious facts as above. For the historian geeks: Constantine the Great sent his son Crispus to be stationed at Doncaster and Queen Victoria had a special private toilet built just for her use at the Mansion House for when she deigned to visit. A section of the rubbly remnants of a Roman wall can be seen in the grounds of Doncaster Minster and the oldest building in South Yorkshire, St Peter's Church in Conisbrough, dates back to AD 675.
Doncaster seems to have a preoccupation with any contraption with a motor. There is the aircraft museum, the Trolleybus museum with over 60 trolleybuses to gawk at and the Markham Grange Steam Museum that displays a private collection of steam engines. The town's main museum is the Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery that has a major exhibit of the trophies from the Doncaster Racecourse as well as housing the Regimental Museum of the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry. If you like a bit of war history you can fossick through the Ashworth Barracks Museum that includes a First World War exhibit. Maybe this is a boys' town, considering the number of boys' toys on display.
Finally for the ladies there is the Doncaster Racecourse that hosts the Doncaster Gold Cup, the oldest horse race in the world. The night clubs and bars are jammed together in the Silver Street, Cleveland Street and High Street areas, with some stylish restaurants in the town center. Then there is always a night out at the movies or the theater in the compromise of your having to stare at one greasy motor after another.
