Don Valley - a diverse constituency.
Don Valley constituency covers the South, East and West of Doncaster, a total of 31 villages, plus a few hamlets. It covers about forty per cent of the area of Doncaster Borough, the largest metropolitan borough in the country. The constituency runs from Old Denaby in the west, to Thorne in the North east of the borough. It takes its name from the River Don which flows along the northern boundary of Denaby Main, Conisbrough and Warmsworth.
This diverse constituency includes Thorne & Hatfield Moors, which are part of the Humberhead Levels Nation Nature Reserve; the Northern Racing College, the Yorkshire Wildlife Park and Robin Hood Airport. Don Valley does not include any of the town centre.
There are seven wards in the constituency, covering over 31 towns and villages, plus a few small hamlets. Wards are soon to be reorganised to reduce the number of councillors. This will not affect who is your MP. The Parliamentary constituency does not change.
