Ashwood Road, Parkgate

Parkgate is a suburb of Rotherham, South Yorkshire, England. It has since been consumed by its neighbour, Rawmarsh and is in the ward of Rawmarks from which it has been indistinguishable since the early 20th century.[citation needed] Its name is said to originate from its location at the end point of the parkland of Wentworth Woodhouse. Although it marks the old entry gates of the parkland, the Wentworth estate stretched far past it, encompassing 90,000 acres of what was beautiful English countryside.

This is also near the location of the Park Gate Iron and Steel Company.

There is a football club, Parkgate F.C., based in the suburb, and the defunct clubs Parkgate & Rawmarsh United, Parkgate Works Sports and Parkgate Welfare was also prominent.

It is also home to the Parkgate Shopping Outlet.
