EYAM PLAGUE VILLAGE

In the 17th century, bubonic plague or the Black Death spread across Europe into Britain. It was carried by fleas and the disease found its way via fleas in clothing sent in a box from London to the tiny Peak District village of Eyam.

The story of how the villagers agreed to quarantine themselves and prevent the spread of the illness more widely, can be found at Eyam Museum. Many of the villagers perished but their selfless actions saved many more deaths. Have a look in the local church and see the place where food was left by outsiders for the village during the outbreak.
Museum open April to October.
Check this site - Eyam Museum for more details.
