The little village of Wylam lies some 16km west of Newcastle upon Tyne in the northeast of England. Situated in the most densely populated part of the county of Northumbria, Wylam is perhaps most famous for being the erstwhile home of the engineer George Stephenson, who was one of the early railway pioneers. Together with his contemporary, the steam locomotive engineer Timothy Hackworth, also a Wylam lad, the two of them were responsible for linking much of Britain by railway lines. Stephenson’s cottage, where he was born in December 1786, is open to the public and is owned by the National Trust.
Wylam’s industrial heritage is mainly concerned with ironworks and collieries, but today the village is almost entirely residential, as many people working in Newcastle upon Tyne and Hexham prefer to live here rather than in the cities. The Newcastle and Carlisle Railway serves the village.
Another important source of income was derived from Wylam’s brewery, which ceased to trade in the 1870s, but provided employment for a great number of village residents in the meantime. Today Wylam has a new brewery which was established in May 2000 by two friends who share a passion for real ale and the excellent quality of their product. By August 2000 they had brought their first ale, “Landlord’s Choice”, to market and the brewery went from strength to strength, winning many awards at festivals around the country for their beer.
Breweries can be hazardous places to work and accidents at work do happen. The accident victim may find themself looking for an injury solicitor working no win no fee* in Wylam. During the brewing process, when the components that produce beer start to ferment, fumes are also produced that can work like a narcotic on those who breathe in the air that is escaping from open vats. In the past, workers leaning over the vast beer vats have been known to be overcome by the fumes and have fallen into the vats, where they have met an unpleasant end.
Any accident at work that was not down to an employee’s own error would mean that the employee could seek compensation from their employer.
