Highfields, Doncaster

Highfields is a former coal mining village, located south of the model village of Woodlands, in the English county of South Yorkshire. It is part of the Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster. Although it does not currently have an air of prosperity, Highfields was built so that most houses either overlooked farmland or woodland (and an ornamental lake - Highfields Lake) or the greens in the centre of the village.
