Historic Chichester in Sussex is mainly famous for its ancient cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century. As the seat of a bishopric, Chichester boasts some of Britain’s oldest churches and other fine examples of early architecture.
Beautifully situated in the South Downs on the River Lavant in the South East of England, Chichester has many tourist attractions aside from the cathedral. The town’s Festival theatre, the harbour and its medieval walled fortifications, its Roman foundations and Graylingwell Hospital are tourist attractions that draw thousands of visitors to Chichester every year.
The main Conservation Area in Chichester’s medieval heart comprises of many stunning Grade I and II buildings but also includes the canal basin and the canal itself. Going for a stroll to take pictures of picturesque and ancient buildings is a particular favourite with visitors from New World countries where architecture as old as this simply doesn’t exist. It is easy to get carried away and ignore a warning notice that asks visitors not to climb a crumbling set of stairs or scale a watch tower that was last repaired when Henry VIII was busy cutting off unwanted female heads.
If you ignore a warning sign and tumble down stairs, you only have yourself to blame, but if there was no sign and you climbed up a watch tour and the structure collapses, you can claim compensation from whoever should have placed a warning notice and stopped you from entering the premises.
It could be argued that you shouldn’t have been trespassing onto what may not be public but private land, but when a town practically lives on revenue derived from tourists’ expenditure and lures visitors into a Conservation Area to spend money in local shops and cafes, an accident solicitor in Chichester handling your personal injury claim may well argue that the owner of the premises should have made doubly sure nobody could get hurt.
