Woodlands is a model village, 3 miles (5 km) north of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, England. It was designed and built in the early 20th century by the architect Percy Bond Houfton as tied cottages for the miners of the neighbouring Brodsworth Colliery. In an era of model villages such as Saltaire, Port Sunlight and Bournville, Woodlands, with extensive open spaces, many different designs of houses, and overall living conditions superb for their time, possibly represents the height of the model village movement. The whole of the village is now a conservation area.
