Road traffic accidents can cause an injury claim in Newnham-on-Severn
Newnham-on-Severn is a village near the Forest of Dean approximately 10 miles from Gloucester. A chapel was built there in 1018, but this was being eroded by the River Severn and in 1366 a new church was built on higher ground. In 1644 a gunpowder explosion in the English Civil War damaged the new church and in 1881 it was damaged by fire. The building is still in use today.
The Ancient Romans built three roads through Newnham-on-Severn and the Anglo Saxons established a permanent settlement there. The Normans built a motte-and-bailey fortification and in medieval times it became a major port. Henry 11 launched his invasion of Ireland from there, with 400 ships and 5000 men it shows how important Newnham-on-Severn was as a port. The role it played diminished with the opening of the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal.
The village is the first point where you can easily see the famous Severn Bore as it starts its way up the River Severn towards Gloucester.
