What a fantastic time we had visiting Eyam. 13000 steps and no complaints of being too tired to carry on! We were all ‘Plague detectives’ and found evidence to tell us that The Plague really did happen and wasn’t just a story that we had made up. We visited the boundary stone where coins were left soaked in vinegar and food was left in return. We visited the Riley graves where Elizabeth Hancocke buried her husband and 6 children. We saw plaques on cottages telling us who had lived there and whether they had died in 1665 or 1666. We were respectful, polite and very well behaved. Amazing.
