The history of the area seems to ooze out of the stone built church and encourages contemplation of all things spiritual.

Normally hill walkers, and not being churchgoers we were not sure how we would fit into a lower level walk from church to church. We loved it. It was challenging enough to get us out of breath without it being a slog, the views were amazing and the frequent tea room and pub stops a delight. Visiting the churches to collect our 'stamps' gave depth to the walk as we really felt we were touching on part of each of the village's history. Our highlight has to be catching sight of Bob Jackson, the author of the guide, running across a churchyard towards us. He had spied the guidebook in our hands and had stopped to say hello! We are looking forward to the forthcoming extension - the Hope Pilgrimage which we understand will be available from 2020.

We set off from Ashbourne to walk to Ilam, a little anxious about the challenges ahead but the four days(in reality three, we spent a whole day in Ilam), walking the Pilgrimage route to Eyam became a time we will never forget. The clear, detailed directions provided in the guidebook and the welcoming atmosphere within all the churches visited, enabled us to draw closer to each other and to God. We were blessed by the weather, the lovely countryside and the tea shops! The sun highlighting Eyam from the Boundary Stone relating it's history, was a dramatic finally to our journey.

Pilgrimage is a journey to and from special spiritual places which have an atmosphere all of their own. In this case it is the parish churches on the route of this Pilgimage which runs between Ilam and Eyam across spectacular Peak District countryside. This was commenced recently to remember Eyam and the special place it has in history for stopping the spread of the plague by shutting down the village to the outside world when they realised that they had been infected. Pilgrimage is a journey but not necessarily on foot - for those with less time car/bike journeys are perfectly acceptable. The journey is the main event however it is made.
