At one time, Ridgeway in Derbyshire, would have been part of the ancient Sherwood Forest (of Robin Hood fame). The village of Ridgeway is in the Moss Valley Conservation Area. In the past it was a centre for the production of sickles, scythes and hooks which were exported to other parts of the world as well as being sold on the domestic market. Kent Hall, now a private residence, is probably the oldest building in Ridgeway, dating back to around 1650. The villagers carry on the ancient traditions of the area, such as well-dressing. This custom probably has its roots in Britain’s pagan times, as it is a celebration of the water that was provided for the land and people in winter, and the thankfulness that spring (and fertility) has arrived. They also make scarecrows which are placed at various points around the village, as well as in gardens.
Have you had a whiplash injury in Ridgeway?
If you have had a whiplash injury in Ridgeway you might be wondering if you could make a personal injury compensation claim for it. The answer is that it depends on several factors. First of all, if you have sustained a whiplash injury in Ridgeway, you have to be in a position to prove that the accident which you were involved in was not your fault, but that another person was to blame for it. You would also need to have had medical attention for your injury, as you need a medical report in order to make a claim. There are time limits for making a claim after an accident and most accidents that occur in the UK have a three year limitation period, so you need to file a personal injury compensation claim before that time limit is up. However, there are some accidents which have shorter time periods in which you have to claim for your whiplash injury in Ridgeway, so it is best to find out exactly how long you have to make your claim; you wouldn’t want to just miss out on being able to claim compensation, would you?
