There are all kinds of reasons that you may need legal help in Elmesthorpe, from the mundane to the unusual.
Elmesthorpe is a village in Leicestershire. There is evidence of a settlement there since Roman times. In 1297 in between 40 and 50 families lived in the village. However, The Plague and a failing population caused the village to be abandoned.
In 1485, it is thought that Richard III sheltered in the partially ruined church on his way from Leicester towards the famous Battle of Bosworth. Richard would have been better off staying in Elmesthorpe as he lost his life at Bosworth.
The village was getting a bit of life back into it by 1710 as it then had a population of 40. By 1812, an arsonist was at work. A reward of 20 guineas was offered in the Leicester Journal in May for any information which would convict a malicious person or persons who had set fire to 6 acres in the Liberty of Elmesthorpe which belonged to the Right Honourable Lord Viscount Wentworth. It was also offered that if any accomplice other than the person who did commit the act came forward with information, a pardon might be sorted out.
Visit One of the Last Places Richard III Ever Went to
Today there are 220 homes and 420 names on the electoral register so Elmesthorpe has survived and prospered. If you are in Leicestershire, it is a lovely place to visit to walk around and see St Mary’s Church where Richard III took shelter.
When going on outings like this, it is always useful to make sure that you are wearing sturdy comfortable shoes because once you get walking along those country lanes you don’t know how much exercise you could end up getting. There is a pub and a hotel in the village so after your long walk you could always stop off for refreshments.
A Driver Suddenly Braking
It’s a good idea to always take extra care when heading out of villages as the unexpected is often lurking on these roads. For instance, if a car has got a refrigerator tied on top of it and it has not been secured properly, if the driver has to break suddenly and you are in the car behind, you might find a refrigerator flying through your windscreen. In a case like this, you might need an accident.
If you got hit in the chest at speed with a refrigerator coming through your windscreen you would be seriously hurt, if not killed. In a situation of this kind, you need to give Accident Advice Helpline a call.
