The country air with plenty of walks. The little church had refreshments just inside the door for wary travelers. A nice touch

Eyam museum is a little gem re telling the story of the village and its battle with the Black plague. Small entrance fee and helpful fact sheets for children. Well worth a visit.

The Eyam Museum is a small museum, but documents the incredible story of the people of Eyam village during the Black Plague. When an infected parcel from London arrived, and plague broke out in the village, its people decided to quarantine themselves to protect the surrounding towns.
