Eyam village was badly affected by the great Plague of 1665 even though the disease is most associated with its impact in London.
The sacrifices made by the villagers of Eyam saved many lives in Northern England from the worst plague! Some villagers suggested they should flee the village for the nearby city of Sheffield however Mompession told them not to as he feared they would spread the plague. The village decided to cut themselves out from the outside world. They agreed to quarantine themselves even though it would mean death for many of them. By November 1666, the plague was considered at an end.
The ghost of Eyam village, from strange footsteps and apparitions in The Miners Arms public house, to the ghost of the plagued cottages. Not to mention Eyam Hall which is reportedly haunted by the ghost of Sarah Mills who drowned in the well. What other ghostly encounters will we experience in one of the most haunted villages in the UK? Prepare to be scared!
