If you love visiting market towns, you should pop into Newark-on-Trent if you ever get the chance. You’ll find it in Nottinghamshire, and it is known in particular for its large market square, featuring shops around the sides. It can be picked out because the spire of the local church can be seen from some distance away. Around 27,700 people resided there when the last Census took place, but that figure is likely to have increased in the past five years. If you ever need to locate a lawyer in Newark-on-Trent, it may not be too difficult. However, as you will soon see, there is an easier method of doing this.
Shopping in Newark is particularly pleasing if you happen to be there on market day. There is more than one market day each week, too – in fact, there are five. Tuesdays and Sundays are the only days you won’t find any sort of market in the space.
Are markets safe to shop at and browse round?
While market stalls are not permanently fixed in place, their owners still have a duty to make sure the stalls are safe and pose no danger to anyone who happens to be in the area. This means making sure they follow all the health and safety laws that might be relevant in these situations. If the market stall is not constructed properly, part of it could collapse and hit someone as a result.
It is important to note that such instances are rare. They are very unlikely to happen but if they do, it is worth taking note of what occurred and how it happened. Any evidence you can get, by way of pictures and perhaps witness statements, could later help you if you decide to make a claim for your injuries.
