Hickleton is a village and civil parish in the Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, England. Historically within the West Riding of Yorkshire, it has a population of 290.
There are records of Hickleton’s history dating back to Saxon times, although some consider the settlement has Roman roots.
More recently, it was the 'estate village' of Hickleton Hall, formerly the home of the Earls of Halifax but now a Sue Ryder Care Home.
Hickleton's parish church, St. Wilfrid's is mainly of mediaeval construction with Norman architecture features, restored in Victorian times by George Frederick Bodley.
