It mostly consists of late 19th century and early 20th century terraced houses, which are mainly inhabited by Sikh and Ravidassia immigrants from the Indian sub-continent. Modern landmarks in the area include The Workspace, an office facility on the site of the former All Saints Primary School, Ford and Nissan car dealerships, a bowling alley and a Fitness First public gym. The Royal Hospital, Wolverhampton, which closed in June 1997, is situated in the area.
It is a fairly deprived area with high levels of crime and unemployment, with much of the housing stock in a dismal condition. As recently as the 1980s, many houses in the area were lacking bathrooms and indoor toilets. Since then, a significant number of these older properties have been demolished.
All Saints is served by All Saints Action Network, a social enterprise which has been operating in the area since 1997 and seeks to make All Saints a better place to live and work
