The village of Girton lies in Cambridgeshire, England, approximately 2 miles to the northwest of the university town of Cambridge. The village is in fact home to one of the world’s first universities for women, namely Girton College, which is part of Cambridge University and has existed on this site since 1872.
Girton College itself was founded by three formidable ladies in 1869, who thought it was about time ladies had their own residential college; however, the usual male chauvinistic attitude prevented women’s education to progress to full college status until 1948, when women were finally admitted to Cambridge University and male students of the day had to learn to shut up and put up.
Girton village is steeped in history, having already been a recorded settlement in 1060, before William the Conqueror ever set foot in Cambridgeshire. The site itself, however, has seen human occupation much longer than that, and was already an important stop-over on the Via Devana, an ancient Roman road. Archaeological digs have unearthed late Bronze Age, Roman and early Anglo Saxon finds, some of which are housed at Girton College.
If you had an accident on Girton College grounds and that accident was the result of somebody’s negligence, for example if you used the college’s indoor swimming pool and somebody had poured bleach into the pool instead of fluoride, you could claim compensation for your the injuries caused to your skin. An accident solicitor in Girton or other law firm would write to the negligent party with an outline of what led up to your accident, who you believe to be at fault and what injuries you sustained in the accident.
When a negligent party admits liability, an accident solicitor will then send an “offer-to-settle” letter to that party, which will state what amount of compensation you are willing to accept.
