Eyam : The Plague Village


Eyam (pronounced ‘eem’), is located in the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, England, which became famous after the Black Death of 1665 and 1666.

An outbreak of the plague was contained when the villagers decided to isolate themselves from the surrounding communities. Many people in the village died. It is also known that some of the village population were genetically unique and naturally immune to this very deadly disease.

In this video, we take you to Riley’s Graves and then over to the boundary stone before visiting the grave of Catherine Mompesson and then viewing the Plague Cottages.

There are many other locations that can be visited, such as Mompesson’s Well and Cucklet Church, however, in this video we just didnt have the time to visit either of those two places.
