The Cotswold town of Winchcombe is located beside six long distance footpaths which attract walkers from all over the country. In 2009, the town became a member of the ‘Walkers are Welcome’ network of towns and hosts an annual walking festival in May.The area of the Cotswold ranges over 25 by 90 miles squared and is located on limestone dating from the Jurassic period which is coloured a beautiful golden colour. This stone has been quarried for centuries in order to construct buildings in the area, and is known throughout the UK as Cotswold stone.
Since 1966, the Cotswold area has been protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In addition to its natural beauty of rolling hills and verdant meadows there are many areas of historical interest. This is because the region has been the site of human activity from at least the Neolithic period and through the Bronze and Iron Ages.
Indeed, there still remains hard evidence of hill forts dating from the Bronze and Iron Ages and several Neolithic burial sites can been discovered in the region. Then, during the Middle Ages, the Cotswold area become known for its wool. The wool trade allowed the region to become wealthy and several churches constructed of Cotswold Stone were built as a result. These churches became known as ‘Wool Churches’ and many still stand today as testament to the wealth and prosperity of the area.
These features all amount to very interesting area for walkers to enjoy. For this reason, during the summer, the area of Winchcombe becomes very busy as visitors arrive. Unfortunately, this temporary increase in the population size of Winchcombe may also lead to a rise in the potential for accidents occurring.
When pavements become crowded, pedestrians are far more likely to suffer a trip or fall, especially if the streets are not well maintained. Furthermore, when visitors arrive by car, they may be unfamiliar with the road layout, signs and speed limits and could be more likely to become a major factor in contributing to a traffic collision.Open Claim Calculator
