Stock is a village in Essex which still has a windmill, and it has been suggested that its name comes from hereweg stoc and it would have been settled by 1086 when it should have been listed in the Domesday Book (1086), but it seems not to be specifically mentioned and that is probably because it straddled two (or more) parishes. Archaeological evidence has shown that the Romans were in Stock , and perhaps (it has been argued) there was also an Iron Age fort at the top of the hill. In Saxon ‘stocce’ means wood, and in Saxon times the area was probably wooded, with a settlement being founded within a clearing.
Have you had a whiplash injury in Stock?

How long do I have to make a claim?
You generally have three years from the date of an accident that happened in Britain to file your personal injury compensation claim. However, there are some accidents (and so their resultant injuries) for which you must file a claim within nine months. You should phone us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to claim for injuries arising from your particular accident. If the deadline for making your claim is up, you will have forfeited the right to claim compensation for your injuries.
Victim of a crime?
If you have sustained injuries while a crime was being committed, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). The crime should have been reported to the police, who will have issued you with a unique crime reference number. You will need this to make a claim through the CICA. It doesn’t matter whether the criminals were apprehended or not, you may still be able to make your claim.
