The village of Holcombe lies on the slopes of Holcombe Moor in the Metropolitan Borough of Bury in Greater Manchester, in the North West of England. The nearest larger settlements are Ramsbottom, Tottington, Haslingden and Edgworth.
Much of the moorland surrounding the village is owned by the National Trust and the area attracts a large number of hikers, birdwatchers and cyclists every year, who love the wide open spaces and the traditional stone cottages and farm houses dotted in between gently undulating hills and fields.
The small village boasts a primary school and a restaurant, a public house and a church as well as one of the oldest pack of hounds in the UK; the Holcombe Hunt has existed for more than 200 years and the village has records that show how the Holcombe Pack was taken to Hoghton Tower in 1617, when King James I visited and granted the Royal Warrant to allow hunting over 12 townships as well as the permission to wear the King’s scarlet livery.
If you walked on National Trust land to enjoy a hiking holiday you would not expect to become the target of a pack of hounds. While such accidents are rare and pretty much unheard of at Holcombe, dogs will be dogs and there’s no telling what can happen during the excitement of a hunt. Accidents involving riders and horses on the other hand are not so rare. If you were out on a bicycle on Holcombe Moor and a careless rider ran you down, you could make an injury claim in Holcombe and claim compensation for the dislocated shoulder or broken elbow you suffered in your fall.
Provided your accident happened within the last 3 years and was the result of somebody else’s negligence, you should qualify for making an accident injury claim in Holcombe with an accident solicitor.
