Dore, Sheffield

Dore is a village in South Yorkshire, England. The village lies on a hill above the River Sheaf, and until 1934 was part of Derbyshire, but it is now a suburb of Sheffield. It is served by Dore and Totley railway station on the Hope Valley Line. It has a reputation of being Sheffield's wealthiest suburb, and Dore and Totley was the only ward of the city that regularly elected a Conservative councillor. However as of May 2008 all three councillors are Liberal Democrats.
