Rotherham, which is practically by its nearness to Sheffield a suburb of that great town, has extensive iron and chemical works, mfrs. of glass, soap, starch, and ropes, and exports of coal and lime. The fine parish church is of the time of Edward IV., or earlier. A 5-arched bridge over the Don, with an ancient chapel built on the central pier, connects Rotherham proper with Masborough, the seat of the celebrated ironworks where the Southwark, Sunderland, and other bridges were cast. The Independent College is at Masborough, which was the birthplace of Ebenezer Elliott (1781-1849), the Corn Law rhymer. Rotherham was made a municipal borough in 1871.
