LIVING  AND WORKING IN ROTHERHAM

 

The Metropolitan Borough of Rotherham is surrounded by attractive countryside, contemporary leisure facilities and extensive retail outlets. 

Its proximity to an international airport, the M1 and M18 and the high-speed capital rail links give it a unique location. The Rotherham borough has a population of approximately 250,000 and covers approximately 100 square miles. Much of the local historic coal, iron and steel industries are diminished and have been replaced by thriving and vibrant light and service industries. One legacy of its industrial heritage is that the borough is made up of many villages separated by farm and common land. Rotherham has a number of very pleasant suburbs and the hospital itself is located in attractive leafy urban surroundings approximately two miles from the town centre. Housing in the Rotherham area is competitively priced and offers a wide range of choices, including urban and rural locations.
