The original Donnington village was to the northeast of the current centre of Donnington and was under the Duke of Sutherland's estate. It was a minor industrial centre where C&W Walker Ltd iron works produced components of gasometers and ship's engines. It is home to a small amateur dramatics company, The Little Theatre, and each year the Broadoaks playing fields play host to a free Guy Fawkes fair and bonfire night.
