Tunbridge, as it was called before 1606, grew in popularity after Dudley, Lord North, discovered a chalybeate spring there. Word soon spread that the waters had healing properties, and so tourists went to Tunbridge Wells to take the waters. Queen Victoria was a visitor to Tunbridge Wells and it was her son, Edward VII who gave the town its Royal status. You can still have a glass of the water, served to you by a ‘dipper’ who you pay for serving you with the iron-rich water. There is archaeological evidence that people in the Iron Age farmed the land around the town and mined for iron. There is also a hill fort at High Rocks, and it is thought that this was inhabited into the first century AD when the Romans came to Britain.

How much compensation could I get?

However, for a minor whiplash injury from which you are expected to recover from within a few months to a year, you would currently receive somewhere between £1,705 and £3,520; for one that you are expected to fully recover from within two years of the accident, you could expect to receive between £3,520 and £6,380.

However, you would also be compensated for expenses relating to your injury, as long as you keep the receipts, for medical care and treatment, loss of earnings and loss of amenity if applicable. The sums mentioned above are only those relating to the pain, distress and suffering caused.
