Eyam has a fascinating history. Nearly 350 years ago the villagers of Eyam took drastic action to prevent the spread of the plague and closed the village to outsiders. The plague came to Eyam via cloth imported from London and claimed its first victim in 1665. The village mourned the death of 260 inhabitants, nearly half of the population of the village. This act of bravery is very well known to everyone in Derbyshire.
