Eyam, the plague village!

A traditional English village that lies within 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. With a visitor centre, Eyam Hall (National Trust property) and quaint village lanes this is an idyllic place of interest. Many of the old cottages have plaques on showing the plight of those in the village during the time of the plague.
