You need an accident solicitor in Cockermouth
Cockermouth is an ancient market town in Cumbria. Although it is essentially a medieval town and its market predates 1221, Cockermouth’s main period of growth was in the early eighteenth century – the Georgian era. It is no coincidence that Whitehaven and Maryport, north on the Solway were ports utilising the import/export trade with the new English colonies in Americas. At this time, Main Street, Helen Street and Kirkgate were already in place. Furthermore, luckily for the tourists, nearly all of the original buildings are still there.
Pubs in Cockermouth would open all day when the market was on
Being a market town, the market is both an important part of the town’s past and present. In 1221 the market day was changed from a Saturday to a Monday. In the days when the hours of public houses were restricted, pubs in Cockermouth could stay open all day when a market was on. This made Cockermouth very popular with folks who enjoyed a tipple and it is easy to imagine how packed Cockermouth would get on Bank Holidays because of this. These days the market is a local produce market which offers fine Cumbrian food and drink. It takes place on the first Saturday of each month from 9am until 2pm in the Market Place in the centre of Cockermouth.
It is easy to smile at the idea of folks from over 300 hundred years ago visiting a place so that they could sink probably more ale than was good for them. Unfortunately, with licensing hours how they are today, we see people worse for the effects of alcohol at all hours of the day. This can be a dreadful situation if you are walking through a busy market town on the pavement, a drunk sways and pushes you in the road in front of a moving vehicle.
