Eyam Village

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

The highpoint of each year is, probably, ‘Wakes Week’, at the end of August.  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 local 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. Sadly due to the coronavirus outbreak some of these activities may not happen this year.

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 lived and died, their only survivor being Mrs Hancock who buried her husband and 6 children), Mompessons Well, the Darby Graves and Eyam Hall.
