Fenton Removal Company
Fenton is one of the six towns that amalgamated to form the modern-day Stoke-on-Trent in 1910. It is located on the eastern side of Stoke’s centre. It is close to both the Longton train station, which provides local connections, and the larger Stoke-on-Trent train station which links Fenton to the surrounding counties.
Like the rest of Stoke-on-Trent, Fenton’s past is primarily defined by its pottery industry. This first began at a large scale in the 1850s and led to drastic population growth in an area that had once been only a collection of farms. Factory workers lived together in large houses that were located close to their place of work. But as well as pottery, there was also a lot of mining that occurred during the same period, due to the coal deposits that were found in the area, and this in turn was used to fuel another industry in Fenton which produced iron.
Despite Fenton’s clear industrial significance in the past, it now is viewed more as a residential area than an economic hub of any kind. In line with this, Fenton is also the only one of the six towns that comprise Stoke-on-Trent that does not have a town centre, and instead has shops dispersed around. It should be noted that, though diminished, there is some industry remaining in the town; this is concentrated in the Fenton Industrial Estate, located in the north of the town.
Fenton is a very cheap option for a move. The average property price in the town is £94,974 – under half the UK average. A three-bedroom house on average costs £103,390 in Fenton, while adding another bedroom increases the likely cost of a move to £153,990. In terms of rent, the average monthly fee in the area is a very affordable £396, and specifically for a two-bedroom property the average rent is £422 per month. The highest value streets according to property website Zoopla are Troutdale Close and Sterndale Drive, which have properties valued in the region of £150,000.
The Fenton ward in the 2011 Census had a population of 12,070, and 93.3% of the population are English, meaning that it has a small immigrant population but has less ethnic diversity than the country as a whole. The average age in Fenton is 38, which is two years younger than the national average and could reflected either a high proportion of children, or potentially lower life expectancies for those living in the town.
Despite lacking a town centre, Fenton has many amenities that are key for a good town. These include a health centre, a primary school, a gym, an attractive park with playing fields and local convenience stores. Completed in 1839, Fenton’s Christ Church dominates the town’s skyline with an impressive Gothic-inspired tower. There has been widespread removal of some of the period houses in Fenton, but surrounding this church there remains some very pleasant Victorian terraces that reflect the era in which the church was first built.
