Dewsbury is located in the Metropolitan Borough of Kirklees, in West Yorkshire. It is the largest town in the Heavy Woollen District which is a local conurbation of small mill towns. When you are standing in the town and look around, it is obvious that its surroundings are dominated by hills including Earlsheaton, Dewsbury Moor and Staincliffe. The town centre itself is between 130 and 180 feet above sea level.
Originally a small settlement, the town benefited economically from the arrival of the Calder and Hebble Navigation canal but the arrival of the railway in 1848 heralded the period of most rapid change. During the rest of the 19th century there was a huge increase in population to serve the many textile mills in the area. Along with many other industries, there was a decline in mills in the following century and some economic hardship. More recently, some of the derelict mills have been converted into flats providing much needed homes for the 62,945 people who live there.
Accidents can happen here as they can in any other part of the UK. However, for people who are not working or who are earning a low salary, it can be daunting to try to find a personal injury solicitor in Dewsbury. You may be worried about paying upfront legal fees to get your claim started and this can be stressful if you have little in the way of savings.
