Fletchertown 

 

Fletchertown is a former pit villlage comprising rows of terraced houses. It was built to house workers for the Allhallows Mine which closed in 1927 but employed between four and five hundred people in its heyday around 1896.

New industrial units have been built, notably The George Moore Industrial Estate, on the edge of the village.
