Eyam Hall - a beautiful Jacobean Manor House, built in 1671 & owned by the Wright family for 11 generations, it has recently been taken over by the National Trust. A free leaflet produced by the National Trust provides a wealth of information & ideas including a selection of walks of varying distance and difficulty, one of which, “the two survivors”, passes the huts gate. A courtyard with craft units, café & shop mean an afternoon spent pottering round here is a perfect way to spend part of your visit to the village. See website for events & information on opening times.
Eyam Museum - Eyam Museum, just a short walk from the hut down the hill, discover the story of the Bubonic Plague which hit Eyam in 1665. A series of information panels, film shows & displays help bring this amazing story of isolation & survival, to life. You can also rent an audio trail & follow the plague story around the village.(Opening times March – November, Tue – Sun, 10-4.30, daily). Visit their website - https://www.eyam-museum.org.uk/
St Lawrence Church - The Church of St Lawrence is located at the heart of Eyam. The church community help bring the Plague story to life with their annual Plague Commemoration Service held on the last Sunday in August. Open to the public. Some of the cottages in the village now carry a commemorative plaque. An authentic history of those fearful months is vividly told in an exhibition in Eyam Church and also at Eyam Museum. A video presentation and talks are also available at Eyam Church.

The Hannah Bennet Sculpture Garden - an intimate collection of the works of people who I consider to be some of the best sculptors from around the UK. Some are better known than others but all of them deserve to be in the garden, every individual piece has a story, and it is a privilege to put their work here in my garden as part of a wider collection.
