  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 . No photos allowed inside. Plague window am interesting feature.
