The beautiful Glendale valley in the north of Northumberland is located between the Cheviot Hills and the Milfield Plain, having been carved out by the course of the River Glen. The rolling Cheviot Hills are situated on the border between Scotland and England. The English section of this hilly landscape is protected by the Northumberland National Park and is a popular destination for holidaymakers.
The valley was the inspiration for the fictional home of the famous children’s character Postman Pat, whose adventures take place in “Greendale”. The author John Cunliffe had worked in the valley as a mobile library driver and used some of the place names and landscapes as the backdrop and inspiration for his children’s books.
Kirknewton and Wooler dominate this desolate but beautiful area, although these settlements are very different in size. While Kirknewton is a tiny village with just 108 residents, Wooler is a proper town, just like Berwick-upon-Tweed. The latter two are the largest towns in the area, the remaining villages and hamlets being scattered far apart in the valleys of the River Glen and the Cheviot Hills. This is one of the least populated areas of Britain, sustained mainly by tourism and to a lesser extent by agriculture.
Accidents in agricultural jobs happen quite frequently, but do mobile librarians suffer any accidents at work? He may have to undertake an emergency stop, banging his head on the steering wheel or windscreen, if a careless person steps out in front of the mobile library and stands in the middle of the road. Or a librarian may be tidying up, placing returned books back onto shelves and be injured by the literary might of Tolstoy, Dickens or J K Rowling when their novels come tumbling down on the librarian’s head!
While the former accident was somebody else’s fault, the latter is just misadventure and would not entitle a mobile librarian to make an injury claim with an accident solicitor in Glendale. If you had an accident in the last 3 years and that accident was caused by somebody else, you can make a personal injury claim.
