Nearly 350 years ago the community village of Eyam made the ultimate sacrifice to prevent the spread of the deadly plague – their own lives.

To help you explore some of these stories we’ve created a number of walks starting from Eyam Hall. Choose from The Two Survivors, The Three Decisions, The Lone Mother or The Lovers and explore Eyam and the surrounding countryside.

The Centre, built in the Hall’s former stable yard, offers a vibrant hub from which to explore the wider village of Eyam and its captivating stories. Here you will find a collection of locally run craft units, an independent café and National Trust shop, providing the perfect place to find gifts, refreshments and information while enjoying your day in Eyam.

Eyam Hall, built in 1671, just six years after the plague intruded in Eyam, is a wonderfully unspoilt example of a grit-stone Jacobean manor house. Home of the Wright family for eleven generations, inside visitors can enjoy family portraits, and furniture belonging to each generation.

With a legendary plague history, fascinating stories and a setting amongst the beautiful Peak District a day in Eyam is a day to remember.
