    Solicitors in Matlock Bath


    Matlock Bath is a village and civil parish found just to the south of Matlock, the county town of the county of Derbyshire in the north of England.

    The village is situated on the course of the River Darwent and, similarly to the larger settlement of Matlock, first developed as a spa town. This popularity as a spa town and therefore as a visitor destination can be traced back to the late 17th century, when a number of thermal springs were discovered in the region, but it was in the early 19th century that Matlock Bath really took off.

    This explosion in popularity of the village followed a visit of Princess Victoria of Kent in 1832, which spurred the society set of the time to view the area as the ‘in vogue’ destination for visits and holidays. It is for this reason therefore, that the village grew both in terms of area and population size, and explains a major reason why Matlock Bath does still support a relatively healthy sized population today, as well as still attracting a great deal of tourism.

    It is this heady mix of a comparatively high resident population and considerable visitor numbers which does mean that the village tends to see a fairly high number of accidents and injuries. This fact is what inexorably explains why for solicitors in Matlock Bath is likely to give rise to a significant number of personal injury compensation claims.
