Legend has it that Saint Peter passed through Peterchurch on his way to Rome. While in the village he blessed a spring so that baptisms could be performed there. The spring still spouts into Peter’s Well, and mossy stone steps lead down to the well head. There is, of course St Peter’s church in Peterchurch, which is how it gets its name. The village is in Herefordshire close to the Welsh border. The spire of Saint Peter’s church is interesting as it is made of fiberglass rather than more traditional church building materials.

Accidents while on holiday abroad
If you have an accident while on holiday abroad, you might be able to claim compensation for your injuries when you return to the UK. If you booked a package holiday through a UK tour operator, you could make a claim against the firm, if your accident took place at the hotel in which you were staying or in its grounds. If, for example, you tripped over a garden hose which was on a footpath in the dusk, you and your solicitor could argue that it should have been put away, and that failure to do so on the part of the hotel gardener amounted to negligence.
The hotel owner, staff and the holiday representative are all representatives of the UK tour operator and are responsible for your health and safety. The holiday representative should file an accident report and inform the tour operator. You should ask for a copy of this report in order to make a claim on your return to the UK
