B6521 Road

The B6521 is a secondary road in the Peak District starting on the A623 west of Stoney Middleton.
At first Eyam is reached known as the Plague Village. If you survive follow the B6521 round to Grindleford where there is a short multiplex with the B6001
Off towards Sheffield now and after crossing the River Derwent climb up through the woods to end at the Fox House Inn and the A6187 (ex A625). It runs 5 miles from Stoney Middleton to Fox House Inn.


Eyam is village in the Peak District National Park. The village is noted for an outbreak of bubonic plague which occurred there in 1665, in which the villagers chose to isolate themselves rather than let the infection spread. The present village was founded and named by Anglo-Saxons, although lead had been mined in the area by the Romans. Formerly industrial, its economy now relies on the tourist trade and it is promoted as 'the plague village'.
