Injury Claim in Hexworthy


The hamlet of Hexworthy lies on the West Dart River in Dartmoor, Devon. Within close proximity to Dartmoor Forest and just a mile’s distance from Dartmeet, Hexworthy’s industrial heritage spans many centuries, as tin mining was already a thriving industry in the early Middle Ages in both Cornwall and Devon.

The nearest historic mines to Hexworthy are located in the valley of the O Brook, a tributary of the West Dart River. Records show the mine already existed in 1240. As the tin mining industry declined in Britain, Hexworthy’s mine closed in 1919.

Exploring the countryside on foot

Dartmoor Forest is a popular tourist destination and lies within the Dartmoor National Park. This large area is sparsely populated and Hexworthy, along with Princetown, Bellever, Two Bridges and Postbridge, is one of the largest settlements in the area.

If you came on a hiking holiday to Devon and stayed in Hexworthy, you’d sooner or later enjoy a drink in the Forest Inn, Hexworthy’s historic public house, built in the mid-1850s, provided the country pub survives the current economic downturn. After a long day’s hiking, who could blame you for having developed a thirst!

On the return journey to your camping grounds, B&B or guesthouse, you may well walk across the bridge that leads across the West Dart. If your companions were a little the worse for wear with drink and started an argument during which they accidentally pushed you off the bridge, you could make an injury claim in Hexworthy and expect to receive compensation for your injuries.

Walking through Dartmoor Forest is a great pleasure indeed in springtime and early summer, all that fresh air and lovely countryside, grazing fluffy sheep and larks fluttering up into the air. Your good mood would soon be at an end, however, if you feel into an abandoned tin mine and lay helpless for hours with a broken leg before another hiker discovered you.

Keeping you safe

The Dartmoor National Park authority has a duty of care to those using their park and therefore must put up warning signs to alert the general public to the presence of underground danger. You could make an injury claim in Hexworthy, if you had an accident and could prove Dartmoor National Park’s authority was responsible.
