As part of our history topic, we have been learning how the plague spread to Eyam, so today, we paid a visit to the village.

Our first stop was the village church where we learnt about the sacrifice the villagers were prepared to make to save their neighbours.

We learnt about the stained glass window which shows George viccars, the first victim of the plague and Mompesson and Stanley, the clergy who persuaded the villagers to stay in quarantine.

Next, we walked through the village, identifying where each death occurred.

Then we went to the museum to learn more details about individuals.

We finally stopped for lunch and were able to sit outside as the weather was fine.
