Avoid trauma: Yes unlike the young Winston Churchill who fell from a footbridge in the Chine in 1892. The 18-year-old Churchill, staying locally, was being chased by his younger brother and cousin. He tried to jump from the bridge to an adjacent fir tree to avoid capture. He lost his grip and fell 30 feet to the ground below. He required surgery, was unconscious for three days and bed bound for three months. It was during the convalescence that Churchill became interested in politics. The rest, as they say, is history.
Incidentally it is often written that Churchill fell off the footbridge at Alum Chine. Easy to believe as there is no longer a bridge in Branksome Dene but there is one at Alum. However the footbridge at Alum Chine wasn’t built until 1904. Also Branksome Dene is where Churchill’s uncle and aunt, The Lord and Lady Wimborne, had a mansion.
