St Lawrence's, Eyam

St Lawrence's, Eyam - Mono Landscapes
The village itself is of Saxon origin and St Lawrence's is built on Saxon foundations, with Norman and Medieval architecture included in its fabric.

Eyam is well known as the Plague Village. As when the plague arrived in a bundle of cloth in 1665, the village sealed itself off from the outside world to prevent the spread of disease. Over the following 14 months, 276 of the village's approximate population of 350 died. Their graves can be found around the outskirts of the village, as interments at the church were suspended for the duration of the epidemic.
