There are two villages named Prestbury in England – one in Cheshire and one in Gloucestershire. The one in Cheshire has a designated Conservation Area within the village, with many of the buildings (such as the Bridge Hotel, the Priest’s House and Prestbury Hall) being listed by English Heritage.
Prestbury in Gloucestershire is home to Prestbury Park, the Cheltenham racecourse. This Prestbury lays claim to being one of the most haunted villages in England, with the principle apparition being the Black Abbot who it is said can regularly be seen in the church and churchyard. There are also two ghosts who ride horses, and a skeleton was uncovered in the 20th century of a man with an arrowhead.
People think he is the ghost of the charging horseman who appears especially around Easter time. The poor man was allegedly killed during the Wars of the Roses, so of course his family would not have been able to claim personal injury compensation for his death, as there would not have been injury solicitors in Prestbury at that time, and perhaps there aren’t any even now.

Diagnosed with an illness resulting from another person’s negligence?
If you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to file a compensation claim against the person you believe to be responsible. You would have three years in which to file such a claim.
You may have been the victim of food poisoning after eating out, in which case you may be able to prove that it was caused by the negligence of the restaurant staff; or perhaps you have a work-related illness which you can prove is the result of your employer’s negligence. These are just two examples of this type of illness.
