Pentewan is a village on the Cornish coast in the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village and its picturesque harbour date back to mediaeval times, and it was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The harbour was rebuilt in the early 19th century for the pilchard-fishing industry and so that the locally mined china clay could be transported, although because of silting caused by the coal and tin mining in the area, the port ceased to exist by the middle of the 20th century. The harbour area contains water, but it is cut off from the sea. The beach at Pentewan is ideal for all kinds of water sports, except for jet skiing which is banned.

Can I claim for my whiplash injury?
Although the British government have introduced new measures to crack down on bogus claims for whiplash injuries, if you have a genuine claim to make, then it is possible to do that. You might need to have a second medical examination to prove that yours is a genuine case of whiplash, and you might have to pay for that examination. However, as you can receive between £1,705 and £3,520 for a minor whiplash injury which you are expected to recover fully from within a year, and between £3,520 and £6,380 for one which you are expected to recover from within two years, it is worth making a claim. If your whiplash injury is more serious, you could receive much more in compensation for the pain, distress and suffering the injury has caused you.
