Tameside is a borough located in Manchester. Its history spans all the way back to the Stone Age and the city has many historic monuments including 14th-century Buckton Castle.
What other attractions are there in Tameside?
Due to its historic past, Tameside has a lot of historical buildings and sculptures, including a bronze age cairn and many nature reserves. It is a great place to visit on holiday as there is so much to explore and discover. But you need to be careful in order to avoid any accidents such as a slip, trip or fall.
How can a slip, trip or fall happen in Tameside?
Due to the age of the town, not all areas will be modern and contemporary in the structure and layout of the attractions. When you visit places such as the castle or the cairn there will certainly be uneven ground everywhere as age has worn away stone and other materials. This can mean that if you aren’t careful you could suffer a nasty trip injury on an uneven step or pavement whilst exploring some ruins.
As well as this, Tameside is named after the river running through it, the river Tame. When the tide is high, the banks can get very slippery. If you walk too close to the edge you could sustain a nasty slip injury.
How to prevent a slip, trip or fall injury?
Make sure you read and follow any safety signs whilst exploring ruins and historic attractions. Also avoid walking along the river bank when the weather is bad and stick to the pathway if you can to prevent a slip injury.
Historic sites are great to explore but you still need to be aware of what is in front of you and always look where you are going to avoid a slip, trip or fall. If you want to look at something more in depth, consider stopping to look so you can focus on admiring the view.
