Swadlincote is a town in Derbyshire, close to the border with Staffordshire and just five miles from Burton on Trent. At one time the town was the centre of the South Derbyshire mining industry, but this ceased in the early 1990’s. It now has several industrial estates housing light manufacturing and service industries.
The town centre is not very large and is similar to many other small town centres, with a few national chains represented and the rest made up of local, independent shop owners. The Hepworth Retail Park is a fairly new development outside the town centre, which boasts a restaurant, cinema and various different shops.
As well as local parks, a large dry ski slope and a leisure centre, “Swad”, as it is referred to locally, has the largest 50’s American diner in the country.
Swadlincote might not be the busiest of places, but accidents still sometimes occur. It could be on the roads, in one of the workplaces or simply when you are walking down the street. If you have been injured in the town, in an accident that was the fault of someone else, you should be considering making a compensation claim.
