Wentworth is probably the only village in the country to have its own parliamentary constituency.
Actually the constituency covers a much wider area than Wentworth – taking in many parts of Rotherham. We assume that the constituency name has been retained for historical reasons connected with the political activities of the Wentworth family (see History). If anyone can enlighten us as to the reason this name is still used please get in touch.
The Wentworth MP is currently John Healey (Labour). You can contact him at:-
79 High Street
Wath upon Dearne
T: (01709) 875943
Also, he can be contacted through the House of Commons:

Mr. Healey occasionally holds constituency surgeries in the village.
