St Lawrence Church is the best place to discover the horrific history of Eyam and the ultimate sacrifice of its inhabitants.
The building itself is lovely, the stained glass enchanting. The story told on the permanent display however, is not. Read how the village agreed to quarantine itself to let the disease run its course and prevent its spread to the wider area. See the book of the dead in its glass case and the strangely beautiful Plague Window.
I recommend a visit here. I left truly shocked by the story.
