Hatfield (also called Heathfield historically) near Doncaster is an ancient settlement and a Palace of the Northumbrian Kingdom called Meicen (may also be referred to as Meigen).

On October 12th 633 AD, King Edwin was killed in Battle at Hatfield near Doncaster by Penda, a Mercian chief. Penda was assisted in the battle by the Welsh under the leadership of the fierce Cædwalla. Osric, a possible successor to Edwin was also killed in the battle. Edwin’s son Edfrith also surrendered to Penda. See Battle of Hatfield Chase.

It is thought that this battle gave rise to name of 'Slay Pit Lane' in Hatfield where it is rumoured that the battle took place and the bodies of soldiers lay close by.

[edit] Modern Geography

Hatfield contains the following villages:

[edit] Dunscroft

Dunscroft lies on the A18 road, about 6 miles (10 km) from the centre of Doncaster. It is located at approximately 53°34'10?N, 1°1'0?W, at an elevation of around 5 metres above sea level.

The village was enhanced in June 2005 by the addition of a Pharmacy.

[edit] Dunsville

Dunsville lies on the A18 road, about 5 miles (8 km) from the centre of Doncaster. It is located at approximately 53°33'40?N, 1°1'30?W, at an elevation of around 5 metres above sea level.

Hatfield lies on the A18 road, about 7 miles (11 km) from the centre of Doncaster. It is located at approximately 53°34'40?N, 1°0'0?W, at an elevation of around 5 metres above sea level. It is served by railway stations in Stainforth and Thorne.

Hatfield has numerous public houses, including The Hatfield Chace, Hatfields, The Blue Bell, The Ingram Arms, The Bay Horse, The Green Tree and The Abbey. The original building known as 'the Abbey' or 'Dunscroft Grange' was demolished in 1966-7. For the last 20 years, this building was owned by Mr Harry Lewis. The old Abbey was possibly a dormitory to Roach Abbey at Maltby. Unfortunately, it had to be demolished because the masonry and stonework was unstable, being built in the 12th century

[edit] Hatfield Woodhouse

Hatfield Woodhouse lies on the A614 road, about 7 miles (11 km) from the centre of Doncaster. It is located at approximately 53°34'10?N, 0°59'0?W, at an elevation of around 5 metres above sea level. One and a half miles (2½ km) south of the settlement are the Lindhome and Moorland prisons, while to the north, on the A1146 road, is the Hatfield Young Offender Institution.

Hatfield Woodhouse also gave rise to RAF Hatfield Woodhouse. The Airfield was later named RAF Lindholme and is now the location of the aforementioned Prison.

The village pub is called the Robin Hood and Little John (and has probably always been called this, and certainly since the 1960s). This is consistent with the many Robin Hood legends suggesting that he roamed not only Sherwood Forest, but also Barnsdale Forest. The new Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield is nearby, at Finningley close to the border with Nottinghamshire. Although there has been much debate surrounding the use of the name Robin Hood in the name of the airport, the longstanding existence of the pub helps to justify the case for the name.

Recently an application has been proposed to allow the demolition of the pub and several flats to be built in its place. This application has recently been denied due to rallies by locals to have the plans rejected.

[edit] West End

West End is a small village to the south-west of Hatfield Woodhouse. It is located at approximately 53°33'40?N, 0°59'40?W, at an elevation of around 5 metres above sea level.
