The Malvern Hills are a range of hills which stretch through the English counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The range has been designated as a Biological and Geological Site of Special Scientific Interest and as National Character Area 103 by Natural England and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by the Countryside Agency.
The full extent of the hills run from north to south for about 13 km (8 miles), in between Great Malvern and the village of Colwall, and overlook the River Severn valley to the east, with the Cotswolds beyond.
Etymology Of The Name Malvern
Through history the range of hills now known as the Malvern Hills has been referred to at different times as Malferna (11th century), Malverne (12th century), and Much Malvern (16–17th century), but the original origin of all of these names is thought to be the same. That is that they came from the Old English phrase moel-bryn, meaning “Bare-Hill”, a description which does accurately describe a lot of the natural scenery of the area.
Population Within The Malvern Hills
The main settlement within the bounds of the Malvern Hills is the town of Great Malvern, which grew up as a spa town due to the supposed health benefits of the spring water from the hills.
Aside from this town, however, the Malvern Hills area is not home to a great deal of population, but does attract a fair number of visitors by way of hikers, cyclists and sight-seers. This influx of visitors, therefore, is what explains why accidents and injuries do occur on a relatively regular basis in the area and why it is worth us now briefly discussing Malvern Hills compensation claims.
Malvern Hills Compensation Claims
If you suffer an injury when visiting the Malvern Hills, compensation could be due to you if that injury was definitively somebody else’s fault. This is the case as personal injury compensation is designed to provide injury victims with a degree of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain which they have suffered. When an individual does decide to pursue Malvern Hills compensation claims, therefore, they will want to ensure that their claim is being handled by the best possible people.
