Sprotbrough is a Domesday Book village. The name Sprotbrough originates from the Old English sprote ('shoot', 'twig') and burh ('fortification'), as suggested by the Domesday Book entry Sproteburg; the name may reflect the hasty manner in which the fortification was constructed and may be a reference to the building material used.

We are proud to live in such a beautiful village that has so many interesting historic links.
