Solicitors in Leadenham


The village of Leadenham is located in Lincolnshire, just 11 miles north of Grantham. There don’t appear to be any solicitors in Leadenham, just the usual small village amenities including things like a post office, a primary school, a pub, and an Anglican church called Saint Swithin’s.

The legend of St Swithin’s day

As most people already know, it is said of Saint Swithin’s day (which falls on the 15th July every year), that if it rains on that day, it will then rain for the next 40 consecutive days as forecast in the following poem:

St Swithin’s day if it dost rain,

for forty days it will remain,

St Swithins day if thou be fair,

for forty days ’twill rain na mair.

The original of the village name “Leadenham”

The name of the village, “Leadenham”, appears to have nothing to do with the metal, Lead, but instead is said to have come from the village’s Anglo-Saxon heritage; Leodo being a man’s name, and “ham” meaning homestead. Perhaps it’s just as well. Lead is a tricky metal, and lead poisoning can have serious, even fatal, consequences; not something any particular village would want to be associated with.

Lead poisoning in the workplace

Lead poisoning in the workplace is a serious issue. The sort of processes it is associated with include:

  • The burning and stripping off of old lead paint.
  • The recovery of scrap and waste metal.
  • Working with lead products, as in solder.
  • Lead processing such as smelting.
  • Making and working with leaded glass.

Lead poisoning symptoms

Lead poisoning can be rather insidious as many workers do not show any outward signs until the poisoning significantly progresses. Early signs (when they do appear in some people) include:

  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Frequent headaches
  • Sudden irritability

The later symptoms of advanced lead poisoning include:

  • Constipation
  • Kidney disease
  • Problems with memory (short term in particular)
  • Feelings of nausea
  • Weight loss
  • Weakness in the wrists and/or ankles
