The Civic and Cultural Quarter is re-vitalising the Waterdale area of the town centre into a place of real interest.
Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery has a fascinating history. As we are creating a new Central Library and Museum we will find a new use for the building and a new chapter will begin.
Over the last 150 years the Waterdale area of Doncaster has had many dramatic land use changes. In the 1850s Waterdale, as we know it today, was predominantly fields most likely used for grazing. With the rail and coal industries not fully established in Doncaster there was no need for large areas of housing.
