An Iron Age hill fort was constructed at Wincobank by the Celtic Brigantes tribe, standing on the summit of a steep hill above the River Don. It is possible that here, during the 1st century, the Brigantes attempted to defend against the northward advance of the Roman legions. An ancient defensive dyke called Roman Ridge runs from the fort to Mexborough.

Wincobank is home to St Thomas Boxing school which has produced some of Britain's best boxers of recent years including Herol 'Bomber' Graham and Johnny Nelson.
