  • Informative about the plague story of Eyam. Plague register plus useful maps and booklets. A peaceful place of worship. Helpful stewards.
  • 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.
  • The legendary plague village that isolated itself for a year to preserve the surrounding villages. Although the museum is now the focus for those wanting to learn the history, this is the place actually in the history with the graveyard full of the victims of the black death and tributes are still laid to remember the sheer moral strength of the villagers. A quite haunting experience.
