Charmouth is a village in Devon, on the Jurassic Coast which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you are interested if hunting for fossils, this is the place to go. You can learn how and where to search for them and visit the Charmouth Heritage Centre which has some very informative displays and if you want to know what your fossil find is, you can ask one of the knowledgeable staff at the centre. You may also go to the Beer Quarry caves and marvel at them; they have been quarried for centuries and have been compared to a huge underground cathedral. The Romans quarried stone from this place to build their villas and since those times it has been carved by people who worked for low wages in appalling conditions.
Nowadays, if you have an accident at work, or become ill because of your working conditions and your employer’s negligence, you could make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer with the help of solicitors in Charmouth, for example.
