  • The church is in a prominent position in Eyam. Inside and in the churchyard are the reminders of the plague and the sacrifices that were made to protect others. "Life is hard and then we die"  more »
  • Almost like a step back in time as i walked around the grave yard reading some of them trying to imagine what this church and village actually went through. Well worth a visit.  more »

  • Informative about the plague story of Eyam. Plague register plus useful maps and booklets. A peaceful place of worship. Helpful stewards.
  • It's very moving walking round the village reading the history then seeing the graves of the poor people who lost there lives in this terrible tragedy.
  • Lovely church . No photos allowed inside. Plague window am interesting feature.
  • The village that was the subject of the television play, "The Roses of Eyam" About how a chest of clothes from London brought the plague to the area, and how the village bravley isolated themselves to prevent it from spreading. The actual box that brought plague can be seen ( minus plague of course EU regulations) We have visited several times and have always found it a intresting but poignant place. Set just off the main road it is easy to reach and well worth a visit.
  • Lovely church definitely worth a visit
