Broadhembury is a village in East Devon, which sits within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a small village with less than 700 residents, and many of the cottages they live in were built in the 16th century.
The streets are quite narrow as they were built so long ago, which means cars do not normally travel along them at great speeds. That does not stop as whiplash injury in Broadhembury from happening though, as this type of injury can be sustained if one car is stationery and the other travelling as slow as 5mph.
