Doncaster Civic Trust

An independent group of local people interested in Doncaster’s heritage

Mansion House Project

Once again, we have had the pleasure of being part of a ‘LiveProject’ exercise hosted by Sheffield School of Architecture. We like working with the University – they have already produced the Doncaster Toolkit for the Trust and take a lead role in our architecture competition for Doncaster primary schools.

This time we asked the university to create an education package for Doncaster Mansion House, particularly to help young people explore this wonderful and unique building, part of our rich built heritage.

The project is part of our education programme.

This is a Doncaster Civic Trust / Friends of Doncaster Mansion House / Doncaster Council / Sheffield University collaboration funded by the Trust.

Here at the Trust, we are very pleased with the outcome of this project. The next stage is for the partners to assess how this valuable piece of work can be used to its fullest extent in promoting Doncaster Mansion House.

If you have any comments or suggestions then we would love to hear from you. Please contact

Meanwhile, a big thank you is due to our friends at the university – Bana, Harry, Kou, Abdulbari, Dean, Ashley, Jenny, Yigeng and Hang. And Satwinder Samra who mentored the students. Thank you for a wonderful piece of work!
