Betchworth is a small village on the north bank of the River Mole, in Surrey. It used to have a lime quarry, and six of the lime kilns that dot the area are Scheduled Ancient Monuments now. However, can you imagine the dangers associated with working with lime in the past? Lime was used for making cement to supply building materials in Betchworth and the surrounding area, but workers in the lime quarry, and builders, would have been exposed to a hazardous material. They would not have had protective clothing as workers today are issued with. They might have suffered from lung diseases, as frequent inhalation of the dust raised when quarrying can cause respiratory problems. Workers they might have permanently damaged their eyes if they were working without face masks or goggles too and they could have had skin problems when they came into direct contact with lime dust. At the time when lime was quarried in Betchworth, there would have been no way that workers could have filed a personal injury compensation claim against their employers. There were no personal injury solicitors working on a no-win, no fee basis, no solicitors in Betchworth and no personal injury compensation claims to file. Life was tough for the ordinary person.
