Historically within Cumberland, the parish recorded 548 residents (2001 census), Fletchertown being the largest centre of population in the parish. The village was originally built to house workers in a nearby coal mine, since abandoned. The site of the mine and its spoil heaps remain. The heaps are known locally as the 'pit bank' area.
