If you have visited the Lake District and needed to look for an accident solicitor in Keswick will probably not have provided you with many options. Far from being a busy commercial centre, Keswick is a pleasant market town that retains its charm and character of the past centuries. Originally called “Kesewic” which means the place that makes cheese, its primary business is tourism so any accident solicitor Keswick may have will probably find life a little quiet for most of the year.
Accident Solicitors in Keswick- An Interesting Fact
One of the most interesting parts of Keswick’s history has nothing to do with cheese or even tourism. It has the dubious claim to being the first place in Great Britain in which police used riot gear. This would, at first glance give the town a seemingly bad reputation but it was used to sort out some disturbance involving a police car: as the gear was already on trial in Greater Manchester the police moved in armed with their riot gear and quickly restored order.
Places to See
People throng to Keswick in the summer months as part of their visit to the Lake District. Nearby Derwent Water is always a popular tourist spot and is used for water sports; the Cumberland Pencil Museum tells the tale of the history of the pencil, and nearby Castlerigg stone circle is a well preserved prehistoric monument. On the banks of the River Greta tourists will find Fitz Park which is home to the local museum and art gallery. This is always a popular tourist spot in summer as it is surrounded by gardens and is home to the famous Musical Tones of Skiddaw that actually give out a tome when struck with an object.
Around and About
The main reason for passing through Keswick is as part of a sightseeing tour of the Lake District itself; and many people come here as part of a walking or adventure holiday. It is these more active guests that are likely to suffer accidents and need to employ the services of an accident solicitor. If you are one of these unlucky few then why not call Accident Advice Helpline first and get some no obligation advice?
