Eyam Plague Village

This week, Year 2 went on a school visit to a small village in Derbyshire. This village was affected by the plague in 1665. We saw the village where these people lived and we also visited the churchyard where we saw the graves of some of the plague victims. As part of our trip, we visited the museum where we saw lots of interesting things. We saw: a plague doctor outfit, medicines and cures and we even saw scenes that had been set up to show us what it would have been like in some of the homes back in 1665. Despite the rain, we had a really great day!
