Dore is a village in South Yorkshire, England. The village lies on a hill above the River Sheaf, and until 1934 was part of Derbyshire, but it is now a suburb of Sheffield. It is served by Dore and Totley railway station on the Hope Valley Line. It has a reputation of being Sheffield's wealthiest suburb, and Dore and Totley was the only ward of the city that regularly elected a Conservative councillor. However as of May 2008 all three councillors are Liberal Democrats. The Member of Parliament is Nick Clegg who is currently the leader of the Liberal Democrat Party and Deputy Prime Minister.
