• Description

    Information about Charltons by Stephen Larkin as part of the BBC Domesday Reloaded project. "The village is usually known as Charltons. This name is used on maps, road signs and by the district council and Post Office, but the name Charlton is sometimes used by local people such as the author of the 1986 description. The Slapewath Mine (closer to what is now Charltons rather than to Slapewath with shafts on private land at Hollin Hill farm) was established by Thomas Charlton in 1864. The houses built by his company from 1872 onwards were variously known as Charltons Cottages, Charltons Houses or Charltons Terrace, hence the name today....."
