Eyam has other organisations that have similarly helped to make the village an active, community-oriented, place.
The highpoint of each year is, probably, ‘Wakes Week’, at the end of August, when various community events take place and the historic Well Dressings, newly-created each year by local people, are put on display. The Week culminates in the village Carnival, which is great fun and raises substantial sums for local charities.
The Plague Memorial Service also takes place on the last Sunday of August when a procession led by the Rector walks from the Church to Cucklet Delf. This was the outdoor site of services during the plague, and here the service of commemoration is held.
Throughout the year there are other high profile community activities, including, for example, the annual Pantomime, and the arduous Eyam Half Marathon -- and again all these activities raise substantial sums for charity.
While in the village there are many places of interest to visit, including for example, St Lawrence’s Church, the Boundary Stone, the Riley Graves (where the Hancock family lived and died, their only survivor being their mother who buried her husband and 6 children), Mompessons Well, the Darby Graves, and Eyam Hall.
The village has a Post Office, a surgery, a primary school, two village shops and a Craft Centre (at the Hall). B&B accommodation is available, as are holiday lets.
Car Parking: The Village is well-supplied with car parking. Free and Pay and Display Car Parks are both located directly opposite the Museum on Hawkhill Road, S32 5QP. In addition, the National Trust has a car park for visitors to Eyam Hall, directly opposite the Hall & Craft Centre, off Church Street.
Public Toilets: These are located on the car park, directly opposite the Museum.
