Middleham Castle was the childhood home of Richard, Duke of Gloucester, who later became King Richard II. He, or rather his skeleton, was in the news in 2013 when it was discovered, after years of searching, under a car park in Leicester. The castle fell into the hands of Henry VII after the Battle of Bosworth 1485 in which Richard was killed, and was then generally left to fall into ruins. However, it is still worth a visit, and it is possible that you have been there while on holiday in the Yorkshire Dales. Another local attraction is that of the Wensleydale Creamery which is located at neighbouring Hawes.

Illnesses caused by another’s negligence
If you are wondering what illnesses could possibly be caused by another person’s negligence, here are some examples.
You may have a work-related illness such as repetitive strain injury (RSI) or work-related upper limb disorder (WRULD). These illnesses happen if you are continually making the same kinds of movements while performing your work duties. You may assemble small objects or work on a PC. If you have not received adequate training, or if your work station has not been adjusted to suit your size, then you and your injury lawyers in Middleham may be able to prove that your employer’s negligence caused your injury.
You may have contracted food poisoning after eating out and can prove negligence on the part of the kitchen staff in the cooking or preparation of your meal. You could be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the owner of the establishment.
