Yeovil is in the heart of Somerset, which is not only home to beautiful countryside and breath-taking views, but there are also a number of activities for the whole family to get involved in. It doesn’t matter whether you live there or are taking a short holiday down to the south west; there is something for all to do.
It may be beautiful in landscape, but its countryside location makes it a sometimes hazardous place to visit or live. This is especially in terms of road traffic accidents and outdoor pastimes.
1. Trips and falls on Wyndham Hill
Wyndham Hill is home to a popular river walk, which is a favourite amongst cyclists as well. There are some steep climbs around these walks, so it is important to be careful and not to fall victim to a nasty fall. Also being aware that bad weather that has seen rain previously fall or is falling at the time of your walk. Rain (or even snow and ice) can be the cause of very large slip hazards, especially on rural walks.
2. Travel accident claims in Yeovil
Country roads are amongst the most dangerous roads to travel along (excluding cliff-side roads with no barrier on the edge). They are especially hazardous when you do not know the road or when you are travelling in the dark. This area has also been prone to flooding in the past, so taking extra care when travelling on these roads could prevent a serious car crash.
3. Fleet Air Arm Museum hazards
The Fleet Air Arm Museum is a popular attraction in Yeovil for both children and adults. It is extremely interesting and provides a lot of insight and activities for all who visit. However, the nature of the museum means that there are a lot of artefacts that are hanging from the ceiling or the walls, as well as large planes which you should be careful not to trip and fall into. Any models that create a hazard should have signs making all visitors aware of the risks.
