Gems of the Peak

Eyam Village

Immerse yourself in the incredible story of its unselfish villagers, who sealed themselves off from the outside world in the 17th century to prevent the deadly disease from spreading to neighbouring communities.

Trace the fascinating tale of how the Plague was brought to the White Peak village in a bolt of infected cloth from London in 1665, taking in key locations such as the church of St Lawrence, Plague Cottages, Cucklet Delf and – just outside the village – the Riley Graves and Mompesson’s Well. You can also find out more at Eyam Museum, open from March to November.
