Bletchingdon is also known as Bletchington, which can be slightly confusing. Despite the spelling confusion, it is a village in Oxfordshire, which was mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book. The area has links to the Knights Templar and Hospitaller, who were given land in the Bletchingdon area by Ralph Fitzneil and his mother Agnes. The Knights Templar’s history is inextricably linked to the Crusades, as is that of the Knights Hospitaller. The Knights Templar have been linked to the freemasons and have been the subjects of various novels, such as The Da Vinci Code and Foucault’s Pendulum, as well as the speculative book, The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail.

Accidents at work
You may have been one of the builders who helped convert the stable block at Bletchingdon Park into residences, or you may work on any other construction site in Britain. If you have suffered an injury while at work, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim if you can prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault. For example, another worker may have dropped a brick from a height which hit your foot and fractured it. You might be able to make a claim because of that worker’s negligence. Your employer should have carried out a through risk assessment in an effort to prevent accidents such as this occurring. If a thorough risk assessment was not carried out, you could be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer.
However, if you were hit on the head by a falling object but you were not wearing the safety helmet which you had been issued with, you would not be able to make a claim as it was your negligence that was to blame for your injuries.
