Claims in Prestatyn


Prestatyn is a coastal town and seaside resort which can be found within the ceremonial county of Clwyd and the principal area of Denbighshire, in the north of Wales. The town is situated on the Irish Sea coast of the country and is to the east of the settlement of Rhuddlan.

The History of Prestatyn

There is evidence of human habitation of the area now known as Prestatyn since as far back as prehistoric times, with tools from that area having been found in the caves of Craig Fawr, in the nearby village of Meliden. The first recorded use of a name which can be seen as having evolved into ‘Prestatyn’ comes from the Domesday Book of 1086 when the settlement was noted as being called Prestetone which derived from the Old English preosta (“priest”) and tun (“farm”).

The settlement remained quite small and unassuming, with a population of less than 1000, right up until the 19th century when the coming of the railway began to bring holidaymakers, income and therefore growth to the town. It wasn’t long after this that Prestatyn became famous for its beach, clean seas and promenade entertainers, and visiting for a bathe was considered very healthy by city-dwelling Victorians. This boon for the economy of the town, therefore, was what saw it grow into the settlement which we know today.

Modern Day Prestatyn

According to the latest available census data, Prestatyn has grown to be a significant size with around 18,500 residents, who now work in all kinds of industries and not just within the tourist trade. This means that the town is a thriving and active population centre, but this does bring its own drawbacks such as an elevated accident and injury rate. It is this particular drawback in fact, which makes it worthwhile for us to now briefly discuss personal injury compensation claims in Prestatyn.
