Thurcroft is a former coal mining village set in a rural location five miles south east of Rotherham town centre.
To produce a community profile Thurcroft Big Local has spent a great deal of time looking, listening, learning and thinking. In our profile we have tried to tell simply the story of Thurcroft thus far. We have also tried to tell how residents and visitors see Thurcroft today, and how our community could become an even better place to live. Our main concern is for the future – the generations already growing up here and those yet to be born. Our hope is that using all the resources available, Thurcroft can increasingly be the best place to live!
