Road Traffic Accidents in Worcestershire


Road traffic accidents Worcestershire could mean compensation for you

Worcestershire is a county in the West Midlands of England. If you live there and Halloween is your favourite time of the year, you are probably already getting yourself in the mood for it. Surely there can be no better way to kick it off than with the novel which is believed to be the founding text of the gothic genre, ‘The Castle of Otranto’ by Horace Walpole.

Get gothic

The story is centred around the prince of Otranto, the tyrannous Manfred and his family. The plot develops when Conrad, Manfred’s son and heir, is crushed under the weight of a gigantic plumed helmet. This is portrayed as a supernatural event and causes a train of occurrences to take place which eventually lead to the restoration of the rightful heir to the throne.

The setting is a gothic lover’s heaven as the story mainly takes place in the family castle which has vaults and mysterious passageways to add to the atmosphere and tension. Add to that the hauntings, mysterious deaths, cruelty, eroticism and tyranny and it is enough to give a lover of the gothic an enjoyment bordering on the climatic.

It is Walpole’s only novel and he suggested that the idea came to him in a dream which is what Mary Shelley said about Frankenstein. However, he obviously thought it was a bit much for his reading public as he not only published it under the pseudonym, Onuphrio Muralto but declared that it was a translation of a 16th century Italian manuscript – cheeky. This was in 1765 – he would probably be shocked that it is still being read and enjoyed in the 21st century.

If after enjoying the delights of ‘The Castle of Otranto’, you decide that you have to find a castle with vaults and secret passageways so that you can enjoy passages from the book with a special friend, let’s hope that you are not in a car accident while you are on your way there. If you are and it is not your fault, you may be able to claim compensation for road traffic accidents in Worcestershire. You should ring the Accident Advice Helpline to find out more.
