Well , excuse the pun it’s that time of year again, the Peaks are awash with well dressings, the ritual for Eyam only started in 1951.
Eyam has several shops and tea rooms, plus one pub, the Miner’s Arms. This is dated 1630 and is the former meeting place of the Barmote Court, which dealt with lead mining disputes. It is also is reputed to be one of the most haunted buildings in Derbyshire, which would surely add interest to a night’s stay! Just outside the village is a public carpark and toilets with a small museum opposite. On the edge above the village there is a Youth Hostel.
Eyam has a well-dressing in late August.
managed to sneak a picture of the lady’s designing their dressing, think they look shocked enough.
will be heading out later to Osmaston, a most beautiful village
