Gwersyllt is a village and local government community which can be found within the county borough of Wrexham in Wales. The village is one of Wrexham’s largest and is situated in the north western suburbs of the town, bordering the nearby villages of Llay, Cefn-y-Bedd and Sydallt.
The name of Gwersyllt is thought by some to have come from from the Welsh word, gwersyll, meaning “campsite”, with the final ‘t’ common in the area’s dialect. There is some debate as to this, however, due to the fact that during the mediaeval period the name was written as “Wershull” or “Wersull” and during the 16th century it appeared as either “Gwershull” or “Wersham”. This suggests, therefore, that the modern moniker is a Welsh adaptation of an earlier English name.
A brief history of Gwersyllt
Gwersyllt spent much of its early existence as a small parish of the settlement known as Gresford and by as late as 1833 had only 834 residents. It was only during the Industrial Revolution that the village began to really grow in earnest, therefore, and this growth occurred apace once it began.
This was the case due to the village’s position between the collieries of the Moss Valley and Bradley, which meant that many hundreds of workers and their families came to live in Gwersyllt. Despite of the subsequent decline of coal mining, therefore, it was the rapid expansion of the village at that time which had most to do with creating the Gwersyllt which would be recognised today.
Modern day Gwersyllt
In the present day, the village of Gwersyllt sits as a comparatively very heavily populated one which is home to over 10,000 permanent residents. This not only makes the settlement a very large one to have only reached village status but also explains why Gwersyllt does see more accidents and injuries than many other villages. With that in mind, then, we will now turn our attention to the major issues surrounding Gwersyllt accident claim proceedings.
Gwersyllt accident claim proceedings
When talking about Gwersyllt accident claim proceedings, the first important issue to broach is that of when such claims are possible. An individual is in fact entitled to pursue a Gwersyllt accident claim if and when they have suffered an injury which was someone else’s fault, so that they can gain a degree of recompense for the pain they have endured.
