Catchgate

The name of the village originates from a toll gate which was erected to catch those travellers trying to avoid the toll gate at Annfield Plain. The development of Catchgate is linked to the coal industry and that of the Annfield Plain Urban District Council in whose area it stands.

There were several collieries around the village and the council offices were located here, as was the library which is still going strong.

The great grandparents of Hilary Clinton (nee Rodham), were married in St.Thomas’ Church and the family lived in Catchgate for many years.
