Doncaster has a maritime climate, lacking in extreme temperatures, as with the rest of the British Isles. The town lies at a low elevation in the Don valley, in the lee of the Pennines, and inland from the North sea, meaning daytime summer temperatures are no lower than parts of South East England, despite the more northerly location. The Doncaster area is about as far north as the The nearby town of Bawtry just slightly further south still holds the UK's September monthly record high temperature of Typically, the warmest day of the year should reach However, online records only relate to the period —, so lower temperatures may have been recorded at nearby locations outside of this timeframe.
According to the — period, Doncaster is within a green belt region that extends into the wider surrounding counties. First defined in ,  the policy is controlled throughout the town by the local planning authority , Doncaster council.
It is in place to reduce urban sprawl , prevent areas in the Doncaster conurbation from further uncontrolled convergence, protect the identity of outlying communities, encourage brownfield reuse, and preserve nearby countryside. This is achieved by restricting inappropriate development within the designated areas, and imposing stricter conditions on permitted building. A subsidiary aim of the green belt is to encourage recreation and leisure interests,  with rural landscape features, greenfield areas and facilities including the River Calder and valley west of Hexthorpe; Hexthorpe Park; Cusworth Hall , museum and country park; Potteric Carr and Huxter Well Marsh; and the Trans Pennine Trail.
Doncaster emerged as an industrial centre in the late 18th century to 20th century. Its communication links, particularly its waterways, meant that Doncaster became extremely busy and experienced vast migration to its centre.
Underneath Doncaster lies a huge natural resource by way of deep seam coal. Recently there has been an expansion in commercial and residential developments along with good transportation links with the rest of the United Kingdom.
A significant proportion of fresh and frozen goods for northern supermarkets is dispatched by road from Doncaster. On 5 March , Doncaster was granted Fairtrade Town status.
In recent years, its centre has undergone redevelopment including the construction of an Education City campus, currently the largest education investment of its kind in the UK. Doncaster has a bowling alley and a cinema near Lakeside. The Frenchgate Centre , a shopping centre and transport interchange, has been extended to connect with the railway station and bus station. Lakeside Village, a retail outlet with some 45 retail shops and restaurants is located along the A dual carriageway.
The Waterdale area of the town centre is currently undergoing rejuvenation, with a new theatre known as CAST , new civic offices and a new public square already having been completed, on the site of the old Waterdale car park. During the 19th and 20th century a number of confectioners were based in Doncaster including Parkinson's  the Butterscotch inventors, Nuttalls Mintoes  and Murray Mints.
In August Parkinson's put their year-old trademark up for sale on eBay. The waterways, River Don and Don Navigation were used to transport coal from Doncaster to the steel production centres at Rotherham , Scunthorpe and Sheffield. A large number of mining jobs were lost in the late s, and today coal mining has ceased.
Rockware Glass is a specialist glass manufacturer. A production facility for chemical polymers was built on Wheatley Hall Road. It changed hands during its existence until DuPont closed it in the mids.
Steel foundries, rolling mills and wire mills were built close to the railways that brought steel from Rotherham and Sheffield. Bridon Ropes produces wire rope, including the ropes used at coal mines to haul coal and miners.
It is claimed to be the largest wire rope manufacturing plant in Europe. Bridon supplied wire rope for the Olympic Stadium for the Olympic Games. The reasons for this were Doncaster's communication links, the necessity to transport coal quickly and efficiently and Doncaster's expertise in specialist metal products. An extensive housing programme was undertaken for the increased population. The Chairman of the Great Northern, anxious about the workers and their families' spiritual welfare, persuaded the directors to contribute towards the building of St James' Church, which became known as the "Plant Church".
The railway also built St James' School. Doncaster PSB is one of the largest signalling centres on the UK network, controlling hundreds of route miles of railway. Doncaster International Railport is an important road-rail intermodal terminal. In Doncaster Racecourse was chosen as the venue for an airshow, after the world's first international air display in Reims , France in Around a dozen aviators were present, the most famous being Léon Delagrange and Roger Sommer.
Samuel Cody no relation to William F. Cody in an attempt to win a prize offered by the Daily Mail for the first British pilot in a British aeroplane to fly a circular mile signed British naturalisation papers in front of the crowd with the band playing both God Save the King and the Star Spangled Banner.
Unfortunately, he crashed his aeroplane on the first day of the meeting and made no significant flights. During World War I fighters based first from the racecourse, then a temporary airstrip near Finningley later RAF Finningley and now Doncaster Sheffield Airport and finally, in , from a newly built airfield alongside the racecourse, were deployed to defend the east coast against Zeppelins. On a number of occasions fighters took off to search for the intruders but none were ever seen.
The Royal Flying Corps station trained pilots for the war in France. Within months of the war ending the entire station was put up for sale and two of its three Belfast hangars, the same type of hangar that now forms the basis for the Royal Air Force Museum at Hendon , were sold to a Sheffield motor manufacturing company for storage and assembly at Finningley.
The third of the hangars stayed in place, mainly housing buses, until the s when it was knocked down and replaced with modern buildings. In the Government asked local authorities to assist in the formation of a chain of airfields so the country would not lag behind other nations in the provision of civil air services.
Doncaster took heed and, with expert advice from Alan Cobham , on 26 May , opened its 'aviation centre'. Development of the airfield continued and on 1 July an international service was opened to Amsterdam. Shortly after the outbreak of war in the squadron went to its battle station and played a part in the Battle of Britain. After the departure of squadron its place was taken by the formation of Transport Squadron composed mainly of requisitioned civilian aircraft and obsolescent twin engined bombers.
In , after being equipped with American-made Douglas DC-3 "Dakotas", the squadron moved south to take part in Operation 'Overlord' and later in the airborne invasion at Arnhem where Flight Lieutenant David Lord was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross.
The first tractor built at the factory was a Farmall M , which came off the production line on 13 September The Wheatley Hall Road factory was extended after the war with a new foundry to make the heavy castings. The factory started Crawler tractor production in By the factory was making a range of tractors from scratch, designed specifically for British and European markets, and sold under the 'McCormick International' name. Assembly moved in to the Carr Hill plant.
In , International Harvester sold its agricultural division to Tenneco, Inc.
