Fencehouses is a small village situated on the A1052 with Chester-le-Street and the A1(M) approximately 3 miles to the West, Houghton-le-Spring and the A690 (also linking the A19) approximately 1.5 miles to the East. The village is ideal for communing throughout the region with its close proximity to the major trunk roads.

The are is serviced by Dubmire Primary School.

Fencehouses came into existence when Napoleonic prisoners were housed on the outskirts of Houghton-le-Spring. The prisoners were used as labour to cut a path through the hill at Houghton-le-Spring in order to get the troops from Durham to the coast at Sunderland. Houghton Cut, as it became known, has now been expanded to carry a 4-lane road, the A690. The place the prisoners were housed was known as 'The French Houses' and this later changed to 'Fencehouses'.

The village is essentially a single main street cut in two by the path of the old railway line which also splits the village into control of two local authorities Sunderland Council for the south of the village and Durham to the north). This is believed to be one of the only villages to split by local authorities in England with the North part of Fencehouses, County Durham and the South part of Fencehouses, Tyne & Wear.
