The District of Torridge in Devon is home to several memorable towns and villages, but perhaps the most unique is Westward Ho! named after the Charles Kinglsey novel of the same name, published 10 years previously. Created in around 1865, the village was so named to capitalise on its beautiful scenery and location in the west part of Devon.
Victorian notions about the health benefits of seaside resorts and its stunning landscape, boosted the village’s reputation as a holiday destination and the area rapidly expanded. The village is still popular with those seeking old-fashioned seaside fun and frolics, with a tidal swimming pool over 120 years old, rock pools and tea shops.
More modern pastimes such as go-karting and amusement arcades also exist and the beach is popular for surfing and fishing.

What injuries can Torridge no win no fee* lawyers pursue compensation for?
Being injured in a holiday accident can be especially difficult if you are in unfamiliar surroundings, without home comforts or family and friends to support you. Short term, you may find that your holiday is ruined, but longer term consequences may include time off work. If you have been injured in the last 3 years and it wasn’t your fault, Torridge no win no fee* lawyers can claim compensation on your behalf. The types of accidents and injuries covered may include the following:
- Amusement arcades – poorly maintained rides at amusement arcades, with faulty wiring or inadequate restraints, can be especially dangerous to younger members of the public. Hard, unpadded surfaces underneath can lead to a risk of head injury or spinal damage if a fall occurs.
- Go-karting – due to the high speed nature of karting, failing to adhere to rigorous health and safety procedures can put people at severe risk. Flammable substances such as fuel or oil can cause burns and both drivers and spectators can be badly injured by collisions if the track condition is poor and safety barriers insufficient.
