Eyam Village

Eyam has other organisations that have similarly helped to make the village an active, community orientated place.

‘Wakes Week’ at the end of August is a high point in the village year. Various community events take place and the historic Well Dressings, designed and created each year by local people, are put on display. Wakes 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 Sunday of the August Bank Holiday weekend, where the experience of the village during the plague is remembered and honoured. It starts with a procession from the church to Cucklet Delf where the service is held, commemorating the outdoor services also held there during the time of the plague when the church was closed. 

There are many places of interest to visit in the village, including St Lawrence’s Church, the Boundary Stone, the Riley Graves (where the Hancock family were buried, their only survivor being Mrs Hancock who buried her husband and six children), Mompesson's Well, the Darby Graves and Eyam Hall.
