Exam Hall Derbyshire Delight

You'll probably all know the story of the plague village that is Eyam Hall , it's a beautiful place that experienced real tragedy in the time of the plague. If you know don't about the history here is the potted history version of it all , in 1665 some foes infested cloth was delivered from London to a tailor in the quaint village of Eyam.

Within a week the tailors assistant was dead; others in the household soon followed.

With the village turning to the clergy for guidance, Reverend William Mompesson and Puritan Minister Thomas Stanley ; amongst the village was the village ended in to a self imposed quarantine. During 14 months no one left or entered the village 

To get produce and items into the village during the time of the Black Death they left money in stones just outside the village boundary .

There is so much to see in this beautiful part of Derbyshire I'm very lucky to live in this part of the country and with a great motorway/road access travelling here is easy. Eyam Hall is a must see the guides at this Natiinal Trust property ; are friendly and informative , the hall has only been a National Trust property these past 3 years .

Top tip get here early if you want the free National Trust parking ( if you're a National Trust member ) or drive past the district Carpark to the Parish one which is free.Also you could bring your own picnic as there are plenty of places to sit whilst enjoying the peaceful ambiance of the village.

The house is small but charming and the gardens are an utter delight combine the hall with the Plague museum and you're set for a beautiful historic day.
