Eyam is a small village in Derbyshire and in 1665 became one of the most significant villages in England. The actions of its 800 inhabitants had far reaching and important consequences for the development of treatment of the plague.

Our modern day ideas of disease control through quarantine and sterilisation trace their origins back to the selfless and heroic actions of the villagers.

Come and join us and enjoy the spectacular scenery and history of Eyam, as we embark on this beautiful and iconic circular walk taking in Eyam Edge and Sir William Hill, before descending to Stoke Ford, on a wonderful path with superb views of Bretton Clough and the hills and moors beyond.

We will also pass the Barrell Inn, which claims to be the highest pub in Derbyshire offering more great views, before returning to Eyam is via Foolow, a delightful village with lovely limestone cottages, a tiny church and a spacious green, complete with a Medieval preaching cross, a well and a duck pond.
