Eyam Church
Eyam Church
The grade II* listed parish church of St Lawrence dates from the 13th century although it was extensively rebuilt in 1619 and restored between 1868 and 1870. It is best known for its connection with the outbreak of bubonic plague in the village which is commemorated with an exhibition in the church.
Eyam

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'.
