About our town
Thorne is a quaint market town and civil parish in the Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, with a population of 16,592. Surrounded by Hatfield and Thorne Moors, with the Stainforth & Keadby Canal running through the heart of Thorne - it's very picturesque. With excellent links to the M18, M62 and A1 - you can reach Junction 6 of the M18 in a few minutes’ drive.
There's major investment being poured into the area, with the Thorne & Moorends Regeneration Group, Lee Dudgeon Builder, Expression Homes, and the renovation of Thorne Hall.
Thorne is a hive of community spirit, with a monthly farmers market and a family-oriented atmosphere - It’s far enough away from the city life of Doncaster, without being isolated.
