Boundary Stone
Boundary Stone
Boundary stone between Eyam and Stoney Middleton. When the villagers of Eyam underwent self-imposed quarantine in 1665-6 to stop the Plague from spreading out of their village the stone was their only point of contact with the outside world. Food was left here for them and to pay for it they put coins into the holes drilled in the stone and filled with vinegar to kill any germs.
